Under Employment, what is the correct category if you are retired?

What are you trying to do?   Are you asking what to say for "occupation?"   The IRS only uses occupation for statistical purposes so you can say anything---it will have no effect on your tax due or refund.  You can say "Retired" if you want to.

 

Or are you asking about how to enter your retirement income?

 

Go to Federal> Wages & Income>>Retirement Plans and Social Security  (SSA1099 and 1099RRB) to enter your SSA1099.

 

 

To enter your retirement income, Go to  Federal> Wages and Income>Retirement Plans and Social Security>IRA  401 k) Pension Plan Withdrawals to enter your 1099R.

Under Employment, what is the correct category if you are retired?

For the Occupation field, you can enter Retired.   And you can choose Skip W-2s if you do not have any to enter.   If you are asking about a different field or form, please reply.   You only need to enter the tax forms you received.

 

Where do I enter 1099-R?

Where do I enter SSA-1099?
