I also posted this on the "Ask A Foolish Question" board, although this is probably the better place for it. I have an SEP-IRA from my freelance writing days that I've never done much with. Now I'm employed full-time and interested in getting back into investing. Can I still make contributions to the SEP-IRA? My employer does not offer any sort of retirement plan. Additionally, I still receive some self-employed income from doing some freelance writing on the side. Or do I need to open a new traditional IRA account. Can I combine the SEP-IRA into the new account? Or do they have to forever remain separate? In that case, should I just close the existing SEP-IRA? It has less than $1000 in it, and I think it would be eaten alive by fees if I don't do something with it. Any help and advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
