Do I Owe Taxes on My Social Security Disability Benefits?

Just because the government pays you Social Security Disability benefits doesn't necessarily mean you don't have to pay the government its portion back. It's like the old adage says: Nothing is certain but death and taxes.

If you're in certain income brackets, you may owe taxes on the benefit money you receive. Part of your Social Security benefits may be taxed if:

  • You are single and your total income is more than $25,000
  • You are married and you and your spouse have total income of more than $32,000

Paying Your SSD Taxes - Two Ways to Get Your SSA 1099

If you fit into either of the categories above, you will likely need to pay taxes on your benefits and the Social Security Administration should have sent your SSA 1099, which shows how much you received in Social Security Disability benefits.

If you have not received your 1099, here are two ways to get it.

Access Your Social Security Benefits Info Online

  • Go to the Social Security Website's my Social Securitypage
  • Click on the "Sign In or Create an Account" button
  • Log In
  • Select the "Replacement Documents" tab for your 1099

If you want to keep track of your earnings each year, you can also use your personal my Social Security account for that, as well.

You can also obtain a replacement benefits statement by calling the Social Security office at 1-800-772-1213 or by calling your local Social Security office.
