Deductible IRA eligibility


Q: I am a rehired federal annuitant. Am I eligible for a deductible IRA?

A: That will depend upon your age, marital status, whether or not you or your spouse are covered by an employer-sponsored retirement plan, and your income. Check IRS Publication 590, consult a tax adviser or use one of the many IRA eligibility calculators available online.
