Contribute to IRA after Retirement

I retired from the Federal Government with a pension but also have both a TSP and a Roth IRA.  Since I am past 72, I take the RMD from my TSP savings.

 

This year also worked part time. Can I contribute all or part of the $4K I earned to my existing TSP or Roth IRA?

Contribute to IRA after Retirement

Hi Chas R,

 

Because ROTH IRA's do not have RMD requirements because they were contributed with after-tax funds, you can contribute up to the allowable limit if needed.

Contribute to IRA after Retirement

If I use my 2022 earnings to contribute to my existing Roth IRA, do I need to pay tax on my earnings?

 

Could I contribute my 2022 earnings ($4K)  to my existing TSP instead?  Is this TSP contribution tax deductible?
