    In scenarios where executive benefits are a recruiting and retention feature of the company, disability insurance can be a significant key person employee perk. The disability insurance premium can be expensed as a legitimate tax deduction to the company. But if benefits are generated to the executive, the income is taxed as oridanry income at the executive's effective tax bracket.

    This is a very interesting question, because on the surface, it appears as though the original poster is not very clear on the actual business entity.  I can only assume that he is referring to a C-corporation.  If that is the case, then I would absolutely agree with Mr. Savant's eloquent response.  However, if the corporation is an LLC or an S-Corporation, then please know that the premiums on a shareholder are not deductible.
