Third Party Sick Pay in Pennsylvania

I have third party sick pay from taking a maternity leave in 2019. 

I live in PA. 

I received a w-2 from the insurance company for the 8 weeks I was paid through them. 

 

I completed my federal taxes and reported the income there. 

I went to review my state taxes and it isn't pulling the income and I can't seem to "add" a w2. 

 

I reviewed my sick pay w2 and on line 16 there isn't an amount listed. 

Box 13 is checked for Third Party Sick Pay. 

Box 15 is filled out with PA and the ID number. 

Boxes 16,17,18,19, and 20 are blank. 

 

Do I need to report this income on my state taxes?

  • Income received for active duty military service outside the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania;
  • Income received for active State duty for emergency within or outside the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania;
  • Periodic payments for sickness and disability other than regular wages received during a period of sickness or disability;
  • Disability, retirement or other payments arising under workmen's compensation acts, occupational disease acts and similar legislation by any government;
  • Payments commonly recognized as old age or retirement benefits paid to persons retired from service after reaching a specific age or after a stated period of employment;
  • Public assistance or unemployment compensation payments by any governmental agency;
