spousal IRA contribution for 2023

My spouse and I are both 74.  I am still employed.  My husband is a civil service retiree.  We would like to make a spousal contribution to his traditional IRA for 2023 based on my earnings. I am unable to contribute do to  investing in a retirement plan at work.   Our investment person wants to make sure it is allowable to make a deductible contribution for 2023.  He says it will increase our RMD and may not make sense.  Can you give me any advice.

spousal IRA contribution for 2023

Yes, your husband can make a Traditional IRA Contribution for 2023 based on your earnings.  For 2020 and later, there is no longer an age limit for contributing to an IRA.

 

Unfortunately, there is no one- size (usually) fits all advice in this scenario. There are many factors involved in determining if making the contribution makes sense for your personal situation.
