Thanks so much but would you please answer EXACTLY this part of the question?

FOR NJ monetary determination ONLY, are benefits ESTABLISHED and need to be reported by the claimant BASED on WHEN work was ACTUALLY PERFORMED vs. WHEN it was really PAID? I always thought it was WHEN you worked (i.e., is it a different required reporting that must be reported by claimant of 1099 WORK earnings (with NO taxes taken out) when the monetary amt. is being determined vs. AFTER the claim is established when you are claiming bi-weekly benefits that it is recognized differently?? I now know that afterwards it NEEDS to be reported (even if it's on a 1099) but due to circumstances (of having to report by phone & they didn't ask but just asked about availability) so, I haven't been able to do that online where all the questions regarding this are...

I tried to ask a monetary review rep several times & they didn't really answer but kept trying to move onto other things... and since the claim still isn't resolved I want to make sure before a final determination is made....

1.  Wages typically used in the financial determination of benefits ARE NOT REPORTED BY THE CLAIMANT.  These are reported by the employer.  

2.  Generally speaking, 1099 wages are for self employed.  Self employed people are not allowed to collect unemployment.  If the 1099 wages were earned while working full time at employment covered by unemployment, the 1099 wages could be considered a sideline business but would still not be used to calculate benefits.
