Important information for unemployment benefits recipients

Posted On: December 17, 2020  0 Comments

Important information for our clients: If you received or repaid unemployment benefits in 2020, please see the message from the CT Department of Labor below.

In late January, the Connecticut Department of Labor (CTDOL) will mail 1099G tax forms to claimants who received unemployment benefits in 2020 and to anyone who repaid unemployment benefits in 2020. These forms will be mailed to your address of record with CTDOL. The forms will also be available online. 

Individuals who received regular Unemployment Insurance (UI), Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC), and Extended Benefits (EB) will be issued one single UC-1099G form; Individuals who received Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) benefits will be issued a separate UC-PUA-1099G form.  

If you collected UI/PEUC/EB and PUA, you must use both forms for tax filing. 

It is important that your address is up-to-date with CTDOL:

  • If you collected regular state unemployment insurance, Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation, and/or Extended Benefits and need to update your address, go to the Account Help section on the CT Unemployment Benefits Center site and select ‘Changing Your Address’.
  • If you collected Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) and you need to update your address, log into your ReEmployCT account and select ‘Benefit Maintenance’ -> ’Update Claimant Profile’. 

 Getting your form online:

  • Online UC-1099G forms for UI, PEUC, and EB can be accessed by logging into your Connecticut Tax and Benefits account and selecting ‘To access your 1099G information online’.
  • Online UC-PUA-1099G forms for PUA can be accessed by logging into your ReEmployCT account and selecting ‘Correspondence’.

If you have any questions, please call the Contact Center:

TTY – 711 or 800-842-9710

Thank you,
Connecticut Department of Labor
