I urge you to look it up yourslef, but I think that you can open a tradidtional IRA up to age 70-1/2, but there are no age limits on Roth IRA's.

But double check that, since I'm not a CPA. I just looked it up on Kiplinger.com

For 2009, the IRS has waived the requirement to take a RMD from certain retirement accounts.

Here's a bit more information from the IRS website.

You can have a Roth without earned income, I think.

Roth has to be earned income either by you or your spouse.

As for the original question, I do not know the answer.
