STATE WARNS UNEMPLOYED WORKERS FILING FOR UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS ABOUT PHISHING WEBSITES
HONOLULU—The Hawaii State Department of Labor & Industrial Relations (DLIR) today issued a warning to consumers to be on the alert for unauthorized websites that appear to be trying to obtain personal information from unemployed persons seeking unemployment benefits. The websites contain the State of Hawaii seal and are targeting unemployed workers seeking to file for unemployment benefits via the internet across the State. Individuals are asked to provide personal information such as their social security number and birth dates. The websites appear to look like phishing websites and the only legitimate website address for filing unemployment claims in Hawaii is at the following address: uiclaims.hawaii.gov.
