Retirement Credit (code 18)

UC §59-10-1019

If you (and/or your spouse, if filing jointly) were born on or before Dec. 31, 1952, you may take a retirement credit of up to $450. Complete the Retirement Credit Worksheet, below, to calculate the credit.

You may not claim this credit if you (or your spouse, if filing jointly) claim either the Social Security Benefits Credit (code AH) or the Military Retirement Credit (code AJ).

Note: Because the maximum amount of this credit is $450 per individual, you (and/or your spouse) may qualify for a larger credit by taking the Social Security Benefits Credit (code AH) or the Military Retirement Credit (code (AJ).
