Why is pension income taxable but not eligible for the EIC?
Pension income isn’t considered earned income. Earned income comes from activities with active participation. A pension is a payment for past services performed by the employee.
However, you might have received a disability pension before you reached your plan's minimum retirement age. If so, you might be eligible for the Earned Income Credit (EIC).
