Can a person who is retired continue to fund an IRA?

Modified on: 2018/07/12
A:

For the purposes of contributing to an IRA, compensation (i.e. earned income) does not include income from a pension, an annuity or Social Security. Generally speaking, you must have earned the income by performing services (i.e. work) or received it as alimony and/or a separate maintenance for it to be considered compensation for the purposes of contributing to an IRA.
