Is disability income considered social security benefits?

Social Security Retirement/Disability/Survivors benefits are reported on a form SSA-1099 and the benefits received are reported on a federal tax return. The benefits may be taxable depending on the amount of other income you have entered on your tax return.
However, if the Social Security benefits are the Only income to be reported on the tax return, then there is no reason or need to file a tax return unless you had federal income taxes withheld from the benefits or you had health insurance from one of the state exchanges/healthcare.gov and received a Form 1095-A.

Disability income from whom?  If it's from, say, an employer plan or the state, it's probably taxable.
