Is my disability pension considered earned income?

SOLVEDby TurboTax921Updated 1 day ago

If you are under the minimum retirement age, the taxable amount of your disability pension (determined by entering your 1099-R form) is reported as wages and considered earned income. This may allow you to claim the Earned Income Credit, contribute to an IRA account, or qualify for other benefits and deductions.

After you reach the minimum retirement age, your taxable disability pension is treated as a pension and doesn't count as earned income.
