Unemployment benefits - 1099g error message

Level 3

I continually receive error message stating "payer's FID does not match payer's EIN entered at top of 1099-g worksheet". This applies to the last several years including 2020. All info has been correctly input...any advice?

Do you have the EIN entered at the top of the worksheet?  (Not just at the bottom where name and address is)
