DI and PFL Benefits as Taxable Income

If you leave work because of a disability and receive DI, those benefits are not taxable. However, if you receive UI, become disabled, and begin receiving DI, those DI benefits are considered a substitute for UI, and are taxable up to your UI maximum benefit amount.

PFL benefits are considered taxable income and must be reported to the IRS.
