1099 Forms Have Been Sent
If you filed a claim for lost income or wages following the September 13 event you may have recently received a 1099 tax form from Chubb on behalf of their subsidiary that is the claims administrator for Columbia Gas.
A 1099 form is similar to a W2 form and is used to document taxable income. The 1099 forms were sent to individuals and businesses who received reimbursement for lost income. The IRS requires that we report all payments made for lost wages or income – just as regular wages or income must be reported.
More information about the 1099 tax form can be found here: https://www.irs.gov/forms-pubs/about-form-1099-misc.
If you have any questions or feel that you may have received the 1099 tax form in error, please contact your assigned claims adjuster or call our Claims Hotline number at 1-800-590-5571.
