Short Term Disability Tax Considerations:
Your Short Term Disability benefits from Hartford are considered taxable income to you because the monthly premiums are paid 100% by your employer. No taxes will be taken out of your benefits unless the Federal W-4 & State K-4 Tax forms (below) are completed.
Completion of these forms is optional, but necessary to withhold taxes from the payments you receive.
Mail or fax the completed withholding forms to the Hartford address below:
