An individual whose 2017 net income exceeds $74,788 will have their Old Age Security payment clawed back.
Individuals will begin to lose their income tax age credit if their net income exceeds $36,430. If their net income exceeds $84,597 they cannot claim the age credit. However, they may be able to transfer all or part of their age amount to their spouse or common-law partner or to claim all or part of his or her age amount.
Since 2009, persons eligible for the $2,000 pension income credit will be able to transfer up to 50% of pension income to a resident spouse/common-law partner. This will require a joint election which must be made each year. Both persons must agree to the allocation.
