1099-G Tax Statement Available Online Only


If you received Unemployment Insurance benefits, the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development (LWD) will provide you with Income Tax Form 1099-G (Certain Government Payments). However, the form will no longer be automatically mailed.

Unemployment Insurance benefits recipients will now have two options:

  1. View and print a copy of your Form 1099-G by logging into your unemployment benefits online account​. In order to access the form on the LWD website, you will need your online user ID, password, and Personal Identification Number (PIN). If you canno​t remember your PIN or are having difficulty with it, you can contact a Reemployment Call Center. The Reemployment Call Centers are:

      Freehold (732) 761-2020
      Union City (201) 601-4100
      Cumberland (856) 507-2340
      Out-of-state claimants may call: (888) 795-6672

  2. If you are unable to access the self-service system to obtain the 1099-G statement, you can contact your Reemployment Call Center to request a copy. The Tax Form 1099-G will be issued in January, and will cover the previous calendar year in which benefits were paid.
