1099-MISC instead of 1099-G for NYS PFL

I received a 1099-MISC from the insurance company that paid my PFL benefit. Should I just enter it as any other 1099-MISC?

1099-MISC instead of 1099-G for NYS PFL

From what I read for NYS, if it's a private company that paid the PFL then you receive a 1099-MISC instead of a 1099-G (from government).  I received a 1099-MISC from Mutual of Omaha Insurance Co for my PFL.  I have tried researching and answering the Turbo Tax questions many times for the 1099-MISC section, but I continue to receive a notification for "Needs Review" every time.  It seems as though the 1099-MISC on Turbo Tax isn't currently set up to do 1099-MISC for PFL.

I am in the same situation. I found online from my company's payroll provider the following: Paid Family Leave benefits need to be reported on a 1099-Misc as taxable, non-wage income. The benefit amount be included in federal gross income. Paid Family Leave benefits are not subject to employee or employer FICA, FUTA or SUTA. Looks like you add to wages then select part of income is from paid family leave.

However I live in NJ but work in NY, and the 1099MISC has a state/payer's state no. Does that mean I put this income on both federal and state?
