VDOL has worked to ensure information was correct to the best of its ability. However, if information on-file was provided incorrectly, or if claimants have moved or changed their names, the Department has established a process by which claimants may request an update or reissuance of 1099-G forms.
Regular UI and PUA Compensation
- Your total compensation on these 1099-G forms include extended benefits and the additional $600 per week from the FPUC program
LWA and VSTS Compensation
- If a claimant requested a reissuing of one or more of these benefit payments, the Department is still completing the reissuing process. The amount written in Box 1 is the correct amount of money issued to the claimant, even if the check was not cashed and is being reissued.
Claimants may still file their personal income tax return if they believe information included in Box 1 Unemployment Compensation, Box 4 and Box 11 withholding amounts, and the Last 4 Digits of claimant’s Social Security Number are correct. Misspelled names will not prevent an individual from filing their tax returns.
