1335. Do payments made to a disabled former employee count as wages?

If you are a disability beneficiary, payments you receive from your employer after 1972 are not wages if:

  1. You became entitled to disability insurance benefits before the year in which the payment is made; and

  2. You did not work for your employer during the pay period in which the payment is made.
