You will receive a SSA1099 in January.  Go to Federal> Wages & Income>>Retirement Plans and Social Security to enter your SSA1099.

Social Security Disability Income/benefits are treated exactly the same as Social Security retirement benefits. You will receive a form SSA-1099, which you will enter in TurboTax. TurboTax will calculate the taxable portion, based on any other income you have.

Social security only becomes  taxable when added to sufficient other income. If you are otherwise required to file a tax return, you do need to enter it in Turbotax (TT). TT will determine the taxable portion.

Social security (including SSDI) becomes taxable when your income, including 1/2 your social security, reaches:

Married Filing Jointly(MFJ): $32,000

Single or head of household: $25,000

Married Filing Separately and lived with your spouse at any time during the tax year: $0

After TurboTax (TT) calculates the taxable portion of SS, it puts the total amount of SS on line 20a of form 1040 and the taxable amount on line 20b (lines 14a&b of form 1040A). TT also produces a worksheet  to show how the taxable amount is calculated. Although most people pay tax on 85% of their SS. it can be less for lower income taxpayers
