Aloha PCC Ohana,
We thank all those who have participated in the initial opt-in application process for the voluntary separation incentive (VSI). We understand that many are still interested, undecided, or have not yet had the chance to discuss benefit-related matters with DMBA, etc. That said we are officially extending the VSI opt-in period to Wednesday 7/16/2020 by 5:00 pm. Several of you have inquired how the VSI or ISP impacts the unemployment approval process. We can confirm than any acceptance of a VSI application will not disqualify an individual from being able to claim unemployment benefits.
If you or team members have inquiries please do not hesitate to reach out to me or my team.
Tai Vuniwai, VP – Human Resources
