You know, I thought that was the case. I asked the people at Scottrade if there were forms I had to fill out to have the right to handle my wife's Roth account, and they looked at me like I was from another planet. They said that soon as it was online, I could just use the online account to manage everything. I said I wanted to be able to handle all the details of the account, and they said I already could, since I could just access the account online.

Scottrade has a form that you should sign authorizing you to access and trade on her accounts. I signed a form when I opened an account. I could have skipped that step but there could be potential problems if something in the future goes wrong.
