1099-G (NJ Paid Family Leave) Taxable by Fed?

Hi - I have a 1099-G from NJ for Family Leave Insurance that shows an amount in Box 1 (Unemployment Compensation - but again this is really family leave insurance) and in Box 4 (Federal Income tax withheld).  When I go to enter the 1099-G, the TT Deluxe prompt says you do not have to enter the 1099-G if you only have "state income tax refunds, unemployment, or paid family leave." Is this accurate?

1099-G (NJ Paid Family Leave) Taxable by Fed?

Unemployment and paid family leave are both taxable on your federal income tax return. A state tax refund would only potentially be taxable if you itemized your deductions on the tax return for the year you are receiving the state refund. It is true if your state refund is not taxable, you don't need to enter the Form 1099-G, but that does not apply to unemployment or paid family leave. On the screen in TurboTax where you enter your Form 1099-G for unemployment, it says Unemployment and paid family leave benefits are considered income and sent to you on a Form 1099-G.
