Can one contribute to multiple Roth accounts if one has more than $5,500?

From your question as stated, I am assuming you are asking about a Roth IRA. Depending on your age, you are capped in the amount you can contribute to one or multiple Roth IRAs. But an equally important part of the question is what is/are the source(s) of your earned income? Are you covered by any additional employer retirement plans? If your are self employed for all or part of your income, there may be additional tax deferred accounts that are available to you which would allow you to contribute more than the limits previously discu...
