Hawaii Unemployment Rules

In order to receive unemployment benefits in Hawaii you must follow these rules:

1. You must be able to work, and are not disabled.
2. You must be actively looking for a job, and keeping a record of your job search.
3. You must file a weekly certification.
4. You must not make more than your weekly wage allowance. In some cases, you will be able to work while collecting unemployment - but only so much per week. Make sure when you apply for unemployment that you are very clear about how much you are able to earn each week. Your unemployment counselor will be able to tell you how much this is.

As long as you follow these Hawaii unemployment rules, you will continue to receive your unemployment benefits.

I have a question about whether or not I am eligible for unemployment benefits. I have been out of my job for almost a year now and never filed for unemployment. Is there a time limit for filing for unemployment if I meet all of the other requirements. Thank you!
