Customer Question

I will be 64 this year so I can take of my wifeand her 91 year old mother. WhenI retire and start to draw I will only be able to make 1310 per month. I receive 1340 each month retirement from the Air Force is this going to count toward fhe 1310?

My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today. Thank you for your question and for using Is this Air Force amount a retirement pension or earned income?

Expert:  Christopher B, Esq. replied 9 months ago.

I'm sorry, I did not read air force "retirement" the first time. Normally any federal pension reduces your social security because of the windfall elimination provision but military pensions do not. You can receive both and the $1340 will not count as income. So no it does count as income.
