The Hawaii State Department of Labor & Industrial Relations has 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.
To date, the following illegitimate websites have come to the attention of the DLIR:
The official website is uiclaims.hawaii.gov.
The state wants to remind individuals to be observant and mindful of websites requesting personal information. If individuals come across websites that are suspicious, please call (808) 586-8844.
