Another Back Door Roth Question Home › Retirement Accounts › Another Back Door Roth Question Erik94 Participant Status: Resident Posts: 2 Joined: 09/12/2017 Fresh attending, started contributing to a Vanguard Traditional IRA for myself and spouse starting this July. Can I transfer the balances over to our Roths as I go or should I Just wait an do it in December? Does it matter?

It doesn’t matter if you do it all at once or as you go. Just make sure you have no other Traditional IRA money and you’re good to go.
