Welcome to UI Online – the fastest, most convenient and secure way to certify for continued unemployment benefits and manage your claim.
In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to access tax information and how to obtain your Form 1099G through UI Online. Each January, EDD mails a Form 1099G to each individual who received taxable unemployment compensation during the previous year. You should refer to this information when you file your tax return.
In order for you to use UI Online to obtain tax information, you must first register for the Online Benefit Programs and create an account in UI Online. If you have not yet created an account, see the informative tutorial “UI Online: Features and the registration process”, which will help you create your account in the Online Benefits Programs.. Through UI Online, you can access tax information for benefits you have already received from EDD, in most cases, without having to speak to a representative.
From the UI Online home page, select the 1099G link to access the 1099G page.
Through the 1099G page, you can view and print tax information on unadjusted benefits (Form 1099G) for up to five years and can also request paper forms. The EDD updates UI Online with the most current tax information for the previous tax year no later than January 31.
Due to the extremely high volume of unemployment claims filed, the IRS is allowing the EDD to process 1099G tax forms through February.
If you see a $0.00 amount on your 2020 form, your form is not yet processed. Check back later for updates.
The page begins with the most current tax year available. The form shows all types of unemployment compensation payments and benefits that were issued during that tax year such as Unemployment Insurance (UI), Disaster Unemployment Assistance (DUA), Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA), Disability Insurance (DI), and Paid Family Leave (PFL).
Most individuals receive only one Form 1099G per tax year. Occasionally, modifications are made for some individuals. Modified forms are not available online. If you need an amended form for the most recent tax year, UI Online will direct you to call EDD at the telephone number provided.
If you wish to print the information shown on the official Form 1099G, scroll down and select the “Print” button.
However, if you would like an official copy mailed to you, select the “Request Hard Copy” button. In addition to the most recent tax year, UI Online has copies of tax information for the last 5 years.
At the bottom of the page, below the options to print the most recent tax year, there are links to access the last 5 tax years.
If you received benefits during those years, the “View” link will be displayed so you can view, print or request paper copies of the forms for those years.
You can request a copy of all years one at a time, but after you have submitted a request for a given year, you cannot request another duplicate for that year within 10 days. After selecting the “Request Hard Copy” button for any of the five available years, including the most recent year, you will be directed to the Address Confirmation page for Form 1099G.
Your current mailing address will be displayed. If your mailing address is correct, select the “Confirm” button. If you need to change your mailing address, select the “Modify” button to be redirected to the Contact Information page, where you will update your mailing address for your UI Online account. Follow all instructions to complete your request and EDD will mail the form to you.
If you need to request another tax year, select the “Return” button. You will be returned to the Form 1099G page, where you can print or request another year’s form by repeating the same process.
