Hawaii Unemployment Application Information

The Hawaii Unemployment Insurance (UI) program provides temporary financial assistance for unemployed workers provided they have lost their employment through no fault of their own and meet other program eligibility guidelines. The UI benefits can be availed by filing a claim online or by visiting Department of Labor local office in person. Remember, these benefits are not retroactive which means your benefits start from the day you file a claim. To avoid losing benefits you should start the application process as soon as you become eligible for UI benefits in Hawaii.
