Questions & Answers

What retirement income is eligible for the Delaware Pension Exclusion?

If you are under 60 years of age as of December 31, 2021, then only employer pensions are eligible for the Pension Exclusion. Disability pension income doesn't qualify because it's reported as wages.

If you are over 60 years of age as of December 31, 2021, then employer pensions, income from qualified retirement plans (IRA, 401(k), Keogh plans, and government deferred compensation plans), dividends, capital gains (net of capital losses), interest, and net rental income from real property are eligible for the Pension Exclusion.

An early distribution from an IRA or pension fund for emergency reasons or following a separation from employment does not qualify for the Pension Exclusion. If the distribution code listed in Box 7 of your 1099-R is a 1, or if you were assessed an early withdrawal penalty on Line 8 of your federal Schedule 2 for the distribution, then that distribution DOES NOT qualify for the Pension Exclusion.
