You are not supposed to open an IRA account without earned income. It is not a deduction for you in any scenario. It would be a deduction for a dependent.

Level 15

In order for a person to make an IRA contribution, he must have earned income. In order to make a $5500 contribution, he must have at least $5500 of earned income (wages or self employment).

You need to contact the plan administrator and undo the contribution
