***View and print your IRS Form 1099-G on our website: ui4u.mt.gov. Click 'View' and 'Print' on your 1099-G link on the main menu. Paper forms will be mailed to your address of record by January 31st each year. Please make sure your address is correct and up-to-date. *** If you get a busy signal when calling Claims Processing, that means all agents are assisting customers and the call waiting queue is full. Be patient and call again in 10 minutes or later in the day. Please don't use speed dial. Speed dialing overwhelms access to the call queue and actually reduces the likelihood you will get through to an agent. *** Update your mailing address when you move. UI mail is not forwarded. Your benefits will be stopped if UI mail is returned undeliverable or with a different address. ***
