No, you cannot deduct premiums paid on disability insurance policies. Two scenarios, first if your employers pays the premiums you would receive the disbursements as taxable income. If you pay your own premiums, then you would receive the disbursements tax free. Either way, you cannot deduct on your individual income tax the premiums paid. Think about it! If your employer paid the premiums, there was no expense to you, hence no deduction!. If you paid the premiums, you do have an expense BUT you are receiving the disbursements tax free and therefore could not take a deduction!
