I never received a 1099-G for unemployment benefits from the State of New Jersey. What do I need to do?

It depends.  The law states that if you are aware of receiving income from a source required to report your income to you, you must wait to file until you have received it.  In this case, your best option is to contact  the NJ state unemployment board to have them either send or re-send the 1099-G form that reports unemployment insurance payments.  It is possible to contact the IRS for a wage transcript as well (which can take time on the phone), but they will not have the amount of state taxes that were withheld.

You should try to obtain this information before finishing up your filing.  If you file without it and then amend, it can open up the door for the IRS to examine the return further.
