Each individual may exclude their retirement benefits up to $10,000, but not to exceed the amount included in the Federal Adjusted Gross Income. (To be eligible, you must have retirement income in your name.) The retirement benefits must be received from the following: the civil service of the United States*, the Oklahoma Public Employees Retirement System of Oklahoma, the Oklahoma Teacher’s Retirement System, the Oklahoma Law Enforcement Retirement System, the Oklahoma Firefighters Pension and Retirement System, the Oklahoma Police Pension and Retirement System, the Employee retirement systems created by counties pursuant to 19 OS Sec. 951, the Uniform Retirement System for Justices and Judges, the Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Department Retirement Fund, the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission Retirement Plan, or the Employee retirement systems created by municipalities pursuant to 11 OS Sec. 48-101. Enclose a copy of Form 1099-R.
*Do not include on this line the CSRS retirement benefits already excluded on Schedule 511-A, line 3.
Note: An early distribution from a retirement fund due to termination of employment prior to your retirement or disability does not qualify for the $10,000 retirement income exclusion. Generally, there is a “1” in box 7 of your Form 1099-R for this type of distribution. This distribution may qualify for the “Other Retirement Income” exclusion on Schedule 511-A, line 6.
