You can still contribute $4000 to a Roth IRA ($5000 if over age 50) if your modified AGI is under $156,000.
Your husband can also contribute $4000 to a traditional IRA ($5000 if over age 50) and take a full deduction if your modified AGI is under $156,000.
Phaseout provisions apply over this amount. (See worksheet 17-2 in IRS Publication 17 to compute your “Modified AGI”.)
