Hi Paul, I am not a true TMF Guide, just earning my keep as a fellow questioner here! Someone else needs to verify about rolling into existing IRA, but I don't think there is a limit. And YES, you can still contribute another 2K to your own IRA for this year from this year's earned income. You can also contribute another 2K to a spouse's IRA if you have at least 4K earned income between you, even if spouse is unemployed. Get confirmation from someone here.
