DLIR Offers Tips to Fight Fraud
The Department of Labor & Industrial Relations (DLIR) is working with other states and the U.S. Department of Labor (U.S. DOL) to fight fraud and stop scammers.
Officials offer various tips on how to protect against fraud.
- Remember to never share your SSN on social media or with non-trusted sources.
- For accurate information regarding Unemployment Insurance in Hawaii, only use trusted resources. Avoid social media groups or outside entities that claim to be able to assist you. If the option is not listed on labor.hawaii.gov, it may be a scam or could be used for fraudulent activity.
- There is no fee for unemployment services through the DLIR. We do not solicit payments on social media. If you are asked to pay a fee for these services, DO NOT PAY the fee and report this to the DLIR at 808-762-5751 or (808) 762-5752 and choose option #4.
- DLIR employees are PROHIBITED from using social media to assist customers.
The DLIR does not have any social media accounts except Twitter and the only portal for unemployment insurance benefits is at https://huiclaims.hawaii.gov/#/.
