HONOLULU (AP) - The U.S. Department of Labor says it's giving Hawaii a grant of more than $270,000 so the state can upgrade its technology to prevent unemployment benefit overpayments.
Labor Secretary Hilda Solis says the upgrades will save money by both preventing overpayments and by preventing staff from spending time recovering improperly paid benefits.
Hawaii was one of 22 states receiving grant money. In total, the department is paying out $10 million in grants.
