I am retired and i draw social security. do i put retired for my occupation even though i still do some contract work?

You can. The IRS uses the occupation to help guide them in determining your income flow and reasonableness of the return. Lots of retired people are doing some contract work. We don't seem to ever quit working!

See Where do I enter an SSA-1099, SSA-1099-SM, or SSA-1099-R-OP1?

 

For fun, you might like this link, SSA Retirement Benefits explains taxes and social security benefits in simple terms.
