Unemployment Resources for Hawaii

Direct Link to Hawaii Unemployment

From Hawaii's Website:
  • The Pandemic Unemployment Assistance website is available 24/7.
  • UI benefits for self-employed persons, bona fide independent contractors, and others who are disqualified from receiving UI for COVID-19-related reasons may be covered through the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) program under the CARES Act. Please file your claim at this site.
  • Unemployment benefits are taxable. You may elect to withhold 10% for federal taxes and 5% for Hawaii state taxes from your UI benefits. To request withholdings of Federal and/or State taxes, go to: https://uiclaims.hawaii.gov. Login to your online account and under “My Account” click on “Tax Withholdings” and follow the prompts.The Form 1099-G is mailed every January showing the total benefits paid and any federal or state income taxes withheld in the previous calendar year. Also, as no adjustments are made for repayments of overpaid benefits, you need to keep your receipts of the repayment for your tax returns. Make any address change(s) on your UI online account to receive your Form 1099-G or contact a local claims office.
