However, those who receive Social Security Disability benefits may be thinking, are SSD benefits taxable?

Social Security Administration facing hiring freeze

When Los Angeles residents are approved to receive Social Security Disability benefits upon their initial application, they probably consider themselves lucky. Lucky in the sense that many people know that the majority of initial applications are rejected: somewhere in the 60 percent range. And, lucky that they don't then have to go through the process of appealing the initial rejection - especially since the appeals process is bogging down throughout the country.
