Amend my federal tax return See Head of Household in chapter 2 for the tests you must meet. Amend my federal tax return Under Age 65 If you are under age 65 at the end of 2013, you can qualify for the credit only if you are retired on permanent and total disability (discussed next) and have taxable disability income (discussed later under Disability income ). Amend my federal tax return You are retired on permanent and total disability if: You were permanently and totally disabled when you retired, and You retired on disability before the close of the tax year. Amend my federal tax return Even if you do not retire formally, you may be considered retired on disability when you have stopped working because of your disability. Amend my federal tax return If you retired on disability before 1977, and were not permanently and totally disabled at the time, you can qualify for the credit if you were permanently and totally disabled on January 1, 1976, or January 1, 1977. Amend my federal tax return Permanent and total disability. Amend my federal tax return    You are permanently and totally disabled if you cannot engage in any substantial gainful activity because of your physical or mental condition. Amend my federal tax return A qualified physician must certify that the condition has lasted or can be expected to last continuously for 12 months or more, or that the condition can be expected to result in death. Amend my federal tax return See Physician's statement , later. Amend my federal tax return Substantial gainful activity. Amend my federal tax return   Substantial gainful activity is the performance of significant duties over a reasonable period of time while working for pay or profit, or in work generally done for pay or profit. Amend my federal tax return Full-time work (or part-time work done at your employer's convenience) in a competitive work situation for at least the minimum wage conclusively shows that you are able to engage in substantial gainful activity. Amend my federal tax return   Substantial gainful activity is not work you do to take care of yourself or your home. Amend my federal tax return It is not unpaid work on hobbies, institutional therapy or training, school attendance, clubs, social programs, and similar activities. Amend my federal tax return However, doing this kind of work may show that you are able to engage in substantial gainful activity. Amend my federal tax return    The fact that you have not worked for some time is not, of itself, conclusive evidence that you cannot engage in substantial gainful activity. Amend my federal tax return Sheltered employment. Amend my federal tax return   Certain work offered at qualified locations to physically or mentally impaired persons is considered sheltered employment. Amend my federal tax return These qualified locations are in sheltered workshops, hospitals, and similar institutions, homebound programs, and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) sponsored homes. Amend my federal tax return   Compared to commercial employment, pay is lower for sheltered employment. Amend my federal tax return Therefore, one usually does not look for sheltered employment if he or she can get other employment. Amend my federal tax return The fact that one has accepted sheltered employment is not proof of the person's ability to engage in substantial gainful activity. Amend my federal tax return Physician's statement. Amend my federal tax return   If you are under age 65, you must have your physician complete a statement certifying that you were permanently and totally disabled on the date you retired. Amend my federal tax return You can use the statement in the Instructions for Schedule R. Amend my federal tax return    Figure 33-A. Amend my federal tax return Are You a Qualified Individual?

Amend my federal tax return Figure 33-A Are You a Qualified Individual?   You do not have to file this statement with your Form 1040 or Form 1040A, but you must keep it for your records. Amend my federal tax return Veterans. Amend my federal tax return   If the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) certifies that you are permanently and totally disabled, you can substitute VA Form 21-0172, Certification of Permanent and Total Disability, for the physician's statement you are required to keep. Amend my federal tax return VA Form 21-0172 must be signed by a person authorized by the VA to do so. Amend my federal tax return You can get this form from your local VA regional office. Amend my federal tax return Physician's statement obtained in earlier year. Amend my federal tax return   If you got a physician's statement in an earlier year and, due to your continued disabled condition, you were unable to engage in any substantial gainful activity during 2013, you may not need to get another physician's statement for 2013. Amend my federal tax return For a detailed explanation of the conditions you must meet, see the instructions for Schedule R, Part II. Amend my federal tax return If you meet the required conditions, check the box on your Schedule R, Part II, line 2. Amend my federal tax return   If you checked box 4, 5, or 6 in Part I of Schedule R, enter in the space above the box on line 2 in Part II the first name(s) of the spouse(s) for whom the box is checked.

Amend my federal tax return Disability income. Amend my federal tax return   If you are under age 65, you must also have taxable disability income to qualify for the credit. Amend my federal tax return Disability income must meet both of the following requirements. Amend my federal tax return It must be paid under your employer's accident or health plan or pension plan. Amend my federal tax return It must be included in your income as wages (or payments instead of wages) for the time you are absent from work because of permanent and total disability. Amend my federal tax return Payments that are not disability income. Amend my federal tax return   Any payment you receive from a plan that does not provide for disability retirement is not disability income. Amend my federal tax return Any lump-sum payment for accrued annual leave that you receive when you retire on disability is a salary payment and is not disability income. Amend my federal tax return   For purposes of the credit for the elderly or the disabled, disability income does not include amounts you receive after you reach mandatory retirement age. Amend my federal tax return Mandatory retirement age is the age set by your employer at which you would have had to retire, had you not become disabled. Amend my federal tax return Income Limits To determine if you can claim the credit, you must consider two income limits. Amend my federal tax return The first limit is the amount of your adjusted gross income (AGI). Amend my federal tax return The second limit is the amount of nontaxable social security and other nontaxable pensions, annuities, or disability income you received. Amend my federal tax return The limits are shown in Table 33-1. Amend my federal tax return If your AGI and nontaxable pensions, annuities, or disability income are less than the income limits, you may be able to claim the credit. Amend my federal tax return See How to Claim the Credit , later. Amend my federal tax return If either your AGI or your nontaxable pensions, annuities, or disability income are equal to or more than the income limits, you cannot take the credit. Amend my federal tax return How to Claim the Credit You can figure the credit yourself or the Internal Revenue Service will figure it for you. Amend my federal tax return Credit Figured for You If you choose to have the IRS figure the credit for you, read the following discussion for the form you will file (Form 1040 or 1040A).
