1099G for UC/PUA & FP-1099G Reemployment Trade Update

The following 1099G forms are being mailed to claimants of the below programs:

  • Regular Unemployment Compensation (UC-1099G form)
  • Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA-1099G form)
  • Reemployment Trade Adjustment Assistance (FP-1099G form)

The 1099G forms for Regular Unemployment Compensation (UC) is now available to download online.

The Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) 1099G form will also be made available to download online in the near future. Once the 2020 1099G forms are uploaded, PUA claimants can access their PUA-1099G via their PUA Dashboard.

Fraud Notice: Because the 1099 forms are automatically generated for all claimants receiving unemployment compensation payments, the receipt of a 1099 form by a person who didn’t file for unemployment may indicate a case of identity fraud. If someone who didn’t file for unemployment receives what looks to be a 1099 tax form in the mail, they should report this suspected fraud immediately so L&I can correct their income with the IRS and prevent any issues with the victim’s taxes.
