State urges online filings for jobless benefits
The state Department of Labor and Industrial Relations released information Monday on filing claims for unemployment benefits online. Information is available at labor.hawaii.gov/ui/information-about-filing-online.
Online services are available to file both claims and weekly certifications, inquire about claims, and receive email confirmations, instructions and important notices.
Getting started involves creating an online account at uiclaims.hawaii.gov. A valid email address is needed to set up your account. Within a few minutes of creating your account, you will receive an email containing your temporary password. You can then return to uiclaims.hawaii.gov to create a permanent password and proceed with filing.
To be best prepared, have your contact information and dates of employment for all your employers over the past 18 months. The online system will prompt you through the filing process. If benefits are payable, you must receive your payments by direct deposit. You will need your account type (savings or checking), financial institution routing number and your account number when applying for benefits.
After you file, you will be emailed a confirmation page that will provide further instructions for filing continued claim certifications, registering for work and meeting the eligibility requirements.
