dependent unemployment - 1099-G

Level 1

My clients' (H&W) dependent daughter received Massachusetts Unemployment Compensation in 2020 and received a 1099-G reflecting same. 

To enter the information in Proseries (Form 1099-G Worksheet Certain Government Payments), the software will not allow me to use the daughter's Social Security number and other personal information, but rather forces a choice between the Taxpayer (H) or the Spouse (W).

How can I correctly input the daughter's information so as not to imply that the unemployment was received by either of the parents?

One possible way would be to enter it on the return it belongs - the dependents return.
