(3)  the contributor’s personal exemption for the year, which is equal, for a year subsequent to 1997 but prior to 2012 in which the base contributory period of the contributor ends within the meaning of subparagraph a or b of the second paragraph of section 101, to the basic exemption reduced proportionately to the number of months in the year preceding, as the case may be, the month in which a retirement pension becomes payable to the contributor or preceding the month of the contributor’s seventieth birthday;
