I currently receive a CalPers industrial disability pension

Customer Question

I currently receive a CalPers industrial disability pension due to being injured in the line of duty. Is any portion of my IDR pension subject to Federal or State income tax?

Disability or industrial disability retirement is available for members unable to continue working due to illness or injury.

If you receive a disability pension - it is your taxable income - and you should receive a form 1099-R from the payer reporting that income -

It is taxable on the federal and on the state levels - but if you actually owe any taxes - depends on your total income, filing status, deductions, etc.


If you determine that you will owe taxes - you might want the payer to withhold federal and/or state income tax with each paycheck - here is the form to use -


If you need any help to estimate your tax liability - let me know.
