Maximum Weekly Wage Base and Maximum Weekly Benefit Amount for TDI and Workers' Compensation Increasing in 2017

Posted Monday, December 19, 2016 2:10 pm

The Disability Compensation Division of Hawaii's Department of Labor and Industrial Relations (DLIR) published updated figures for the maximum weekly wage base and maximum weekly benefit amounts for temporary disability insurance (TDI) and workers' compensation (WC) for 2017.  The 2017 thresholds are slightly higher than those set in 2016, as indicated in the table below.




The DLIR also recently published the tax rate schedule and maximum weekly benefit amount for unemployment insurance (UI) for 2017.  Next year, Hawaii employers will be subject to the same contribution rate schedule C.  However, the taxable wage base per employee and the maximum weekly benefit amount are both increasing next year for UI purposes.
