New website for Hawaii unemployment claims

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -- Hawaii residents receiving unemployment benefits can now turn to the internet to file their claims.

Up until now, people had to file for their weekly benefits via telephone or in person.

That's now a thing of the past.

The Department of Labor and Industrial Relations says a new internet system can process more than 5000 claim certifications in one hour.

Filing for weekly benefits is the most routine procedure at the department, accounting for 90% of all filing activity.

There is a link attached to this story that'll take you to the new claim site.
