Hawaii Temporary Disability Insurance (TDI) is a state mandated benefit designed to provide partial wage replacement to workers who are unable to work due to a non-work-related injury, illness, or pregnancy-related condition. The program aims to offer a reliable source of income during the individual’s recovery period, while they are unable to work. Hawaii TDI offers temporary benefits helping individuals navigate through temporary disabilities with some degree of financial security.
The statutory plan provides benefits according to the minimum benefit standards as required by law. The Department of Labor and Industrial Relations determines the maximum weekly wage base. For 2023:
The maximum weekly wage base is $1,318.48. If the employee earns more, the amount in excess won’t be used to calculate benefits.
Employees are entitled to TDI benefits at 58% of their average weekly wage up to a maximum of $765 per week2 (58% of 1,318.48 = 765).
Benefits are payable from the eighth day of disability for a maximum of 26 weeks.

TDI claims are processed in our downtown Honolulu office. Our local customer relations team is available to answer your questions.
We maintain contact with the employer and physician while the employee is disabled and reach out to every TDI claimant by mail and phone.
For employer compliance, we notify the Hawaii Department of Labor when policies are issued.
Preparation of W-2 for TDI payments is offered at no additional charge.
