Withholding taxes are taxes that are subtracted from a payment by a third party before you receive the payment. Examples of this are: your employer takes taxes out of your pay…check before giving you your pay only only gives you what is left of your pay. Or a casino subtracts taxes from a jackpot you won and only gives you what is left. Non-withholding taxes are taxes you have to pay yourself directly to the government. Examples are a check you send with your Form 1040 or a payment you send when you get your real estate tax bill. Remember that withholding taxes do not represent the actual amount of tax you owe. They are just a crude estimate of what you actually owe. The actual amount owed is calculated when you fill out your Form 1040 at the end of the year. Most people do not properly fill out Form W-4 that they give to their employer and so pay much more withholding tax than they need to. Then at the end of the year when they fill out their Form 1040, they get a refund.

Answer If either your employer bought the disability policy, or you purchased it with PRE-tax money (thru payroll deduction perhaps), then I believe disability benefits… are taxable at ordinary income tax rates. If it was purchased with after tax money, usually not taxable. A good rule of thumb is: If YOU haven't paid taxes on the premiums, you're going to pay taxes on the benefits. If you mean "pension payments" when you say "retirement checks," then yes. It is taxed like ordinary income.
