It depends upon the state, of course. Since Texas has no state tax, no worries for you. In Colorado where I live the first $20K of a pension gets an exception from state tax for folks over age 55. New Mexico, to where I will retire, only has exemptions from state tax for people that earn less than $55K (joint filing), so that rules me out from that one.
