Disability income can be paid by a private insurance company that is licensed and authorized to issue disability income policies in the state of policy issuance. The policy can provide short-term or long-term benefits, depending upon its terms. It is designed to replace income lost due to a disabling sickness or accident specified in the policy.

Often, short-term disability insurance is furnished as a benefit of employment by employers for eligible employees. In those cases, the employer may either have purchased a group short-term disability policy, or self-insure for the payment of short-term disability benefits.

In general, if one purchases private disability coverage and him/herself pays the premiums for it, the benefits that are paid are not taxable.
