How do I Request a 1099 G Form From North Carolina Unemployment?

The N.C. Employment Security Commission can help you out during tax time.

The 1099-G form is a federal tax form used to report unemployment compensation paid by the state of North Carolina. You should receive Form 1099-G by mail if you have been granted unemployment compensation, but you can also request it. Ask for it from the Employment Security Commission of North Carolina, which processes unemployment benefits. You may request the 1099-G Form only after Feb. 1 of the current year since you may receive it automatically before that date.

Requesting by Telephone

Step 1

Call the agency's customer-service number, 888-737-0259.

Step 2

You will be asked for your full name as well as the last four digits of your Social Security number.

Step 3

If you do not know your Social Security number, look on your tax form from the previous year.

Requesting by E-mail

Step 1

Go online if you prefer to request the 1099-G Form from the Employment Security Commission by e-mail.

Step 2

Compose a new e-mail message addressed to: for Employment Services.

Step 3

Write "1099-G Form Request" in the subject line of the e-mail. Include your full name and at least the last four digits of your Social Security number in the body of the e-mail as well as your specific request for the form.

Requesting in Person

Step 1

Search online for a local office of the Employment Security Commission near you.

Step 2

There are offices in each county, but operating hours are not the same at each, so make note of the hours before you visit.

Step 3

Bring identification and your Social Security number with you to the office.


If you received unemployment benefits in the previous calendar year, your 1099-G form is available for viewing online at the Employment Security Commission Web site. You can log-in using your Social Security number as your User ID and the PIN number you used for filing for weekly benefits.
