Income from a job? Then yes, you can contribute up to the amount of those earnings.
Doesn't have to be from a job. Alimony and certain other forms of earned income qualify as well. See Pub 550.
Yes, my 78 yo MIL takes her RMD every January and then takes a portion of it and plows it into her Roth. Or is it the money she saves from her alimony checks? I am not completely sure as dollars are fungible.
