Thank your for asking Just Answer,

Both disability retirement benefits are considered taxable income as they are benefits provided by your employer.

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
My employer paid for my health insurance premiums. I have been receiving long term disability which I paid for.
Lawyer: John Legal, Attorney replied 8 years ago
That is a different story. If you paid the premiums then the payments are not taxable.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
