In general, there is no age limit on having to file a tax return. The rule is that if a person meets the minimum income requirements to file a tax return, they have to file one, regardless to what their age is. Now, as for you having to file, the answer is no because you do not meet the minimum income requirements to file a return. In general, if social security is a person's only income, they are not required to file a tax return.

Now, unless you had taxes withheld from the final distribution of the SEP IRA, you d not need to file a tax return.
