Best Answer

Provided you meet the compensation requirements and the income limitations for each type of IRA, you may contribute to both a Roth and a regular IRA. However, the combined amount may never exceed $5,000 (or $6,000 if you are 50 or older). Therefore, should a 45-year old be eligible and choose to contribute $3,500 to his Roth IRA, the most he could contribute to a regular IRA for the same tax year is $1,500.
