If your social security benefits (including your disability benefits) are taxable or not - depends on your other taxable income.
The test is - if your other taxable income plus half of your social security benefits are above the limit - your social security benefits are partly taxable.
The limit is $25,000 for singles, and $32,000 for married couples filing jointly.
If - for instance - your social security benefits are $18,000 and your other taxable income is $8000 - the test is $8000 + $18000/2 = $17,000 - so none of your social security benefits are taxable.

Whey you file your Oregon tax return - you should prepare your federal tax return first.
On the Oregon form - you will use adjusted gross income from the federal form - that doesn't include your social security benefits - see line 8 -
So you do not include your social security benefits are not included into Oregon taxable income.
Also if part of your social security benefits are taxable - they are subtracted from Oregon taxable income - see page 20 instructions -
