    SSDI is reported to you on Form SSA-1099 and is potentially taxable, depending on your other income, just like the regular Social Security benefit.
    I'd suggest creating a separate income Category titled "SSDI Benefit" or something similar,  For tax purposes you can use Form 1040:Social Security inc., (spouse or self).

    HI @jlssls,

    Unfortunately, Quicken doesn't have a "standard category" for Social Security income.  Here are two message threads that should help you set up a category that will get the data to the correct "tax line" and into the tax planning tool - LINK-1  LINK -2

    Let us know if you have any followups.

    Tom Young,
    Thank you for your help, I truly appreciate it. Now the other question that I have for you. My budget and reports for my paycheck are showing my net pay, as my gross pay is that correct? I have a part time job.

    Hi @jlssls,

    It is correct that your budget and related reports would show your "net pay" rather than your gross pay.  The reason for that is, your net pay is actually what you'll have available to spend, since the gross pay has been reduced by the required tax deductions (and other potential deductions).

    Frankx, the "net pay" in the budget is showing the gross pay, and not the net pay. My gross is $52.80, and that is what the budget is showing. My net is $48.78
    How do I fix it?

    Are the deductions, that reduce Gross to Net, also showing?  If so, it's working as expected, since your deductions are also part of your budget (or, should be).
