Getting Started:

Applying for Benefits Online:

You can apply for a new claim, update your employment information (additional claim) or reactive an existing claim online (reopen claim).   To be best prepared, it is recommended that you have the contact information and dates of employment for all of your employers over the past 18 months.  The online system will prompt you through the filing process.  Online filing generally takes about 30 minutes, but may take longer.  Before you submit your application, be sure to review all your answers thoroughly.  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.  Failing to read and follow the instructions may result in a delay in payment.

Filing a Claim Certification Online:

You must first log-in to your online account at uiclaims.hawaii.gov.  Select “Claim Certification” and read the instructions carefully.  You will be prompted through the filing process.  Make sure to review your answers thoroughly before you submit your claim.  Once filed you cannot go back and change your answers.  If you believe you made a mistake, contact your local office.
