Hawaii Unemployment Extension

The Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) program ends on January 1, 2014. The latest federal legislation extended the end date of the program from January 2, 2013 to January 1, 2014.

The last payable week of EUC benefits will be the week ending December 28, 2013.  There is no “phase-out” period after December 28, 2013.

New EUC initial claims. Individuals must exhaust their Regular benefits with the week ending December 21, 2013 to be eligible for EUC.  For individuals who apply for a new EUC claim during the week of December 22 to December 28, 2013, only one week is payable.  All payments on EUC claims will end as of the week ending December 28, 2013.

Existing EUC claims. Individuals on existing EUC claims can continue to file their weekly or bi-weekly claim certifications to collect the remaining balance on their Tier up to December 28, 2013.  Tier II is eliminated after December 15, 2012 but those already on Tier II can continue to collect their remaining balance.  The latest extension has no phase-out period and all benefits will end as of the week ending December 28, 2013.

EUC program ends 1/1/14.  No payments after week ending 12/28/13.
