    This is information is for Independent Contractors and Self employed practitioners. I have copied it directly from the Hawaii Unemployment Website. It appears that they are building a new portal and asking that anyone falling into this category wait to file until the new portal is up and going.  See the Following:


    COVID-19 LABOR FAQS

    The below are FAQs developed by the Department of Labor and Industrial Relations (DLIR) and DLIR’s federal partners related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.  As the COVID-19 pandemic is an evolving situation, these FAQs are subject to change with new information.

    To check the status of your claim, please click here.

    Note: UI benefits for self-employed persons and bona fide independent contractors are covered through the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) program under THE CARES Act.  The DLIR is working on putting together a new web-based system to efficiently operate the program.  Until the DLIR can launch the new portal, please hold off trying to file for benefits, certify claims, or address denials or disqualifications at this time.

    If you need language assistance, please email dlir.ui.languageassistance@hawaii.gov with your name, telephone number, and requested dialect or language.

    If you need further resources, please contact Aloha United Way at 211.
