Recently, he’s been asked by a number of people whether or not they can invest in an IRA if they’re already retired. Investing in an IRA after you’re retired is possible, under certain guidelines.

You cannot contribute an amount that exceeds your earnings and you can only contribute up to the annual contribution limits set by the IRS.
