1099C is cancellation of debt. This event occurs when you settle a debt for less than the full value and the creditor issues the 1099C for the balance of the debt.
Ex: Settle a 1000 debt for 500, the 1099C is for 500.
Most people probably qualify as insolvent if they are in a position to get a 1099C
By law, the chargeoff occurs 180 days after the last payment. Then it can go to a ca for collection.
