"You can own as many IRAs as you want," says Tax Hotline, "and it is a good idea to have several. Having multiple IRAs keeps funds locked up longer - to earn more tax-deferred returns, meet family goals, reduce estate taxes and attain other valuable objectives. Multiple IRAs also allow more flexibility in managing tax-deferred assets. For example, each IRA can have different beneficiaries, and you can transfer funds between IRAs without paying taxes until age 70 1/2 ."
