Over $1 million in Disaster Unemployment Assistance Benefits Approved


The Guam Department of Labor (GDOL) has announced that the next batch of Disaster Unemployment Assistance (DUA) benefits in the amount of $1,076,900 has been approved and is now being processed. DUA checks should be in the mail by the end of this week. To date, approximately $4.5 million in DUA benefits have been processed and paid.

“Our adjudicators have been making great progress and we are nearing the end of the adjudication process,” said GDOL Director David Dell’Isola. “We will start closing out DUA claims next month so we can put this program to bed.”

As a reminder, claimants are urged not to contact the Department of Administration (DOA) for information about their DUA claims. Although DUA batches are processed through the DOA, the agency has no access to individual DUA claims or check information.


To check on the status of your DUA claim, log on to your HIREGUAM account and click on the “Claim Summary” section under “Unemployment Services.” A step-by-step guide on how to check on the status of your claim can be viewed on GDOL’s YouTube page or by visiting https://www.youtu.be/LU99_GTmDqs


Claimants are reminded to submit all pending documents online through their HIREGUAM account or by dropping them off at the DUA Office, located at the GCIC Building, 414 W Soledad Ave, 7th Floor, in Hagåtña. Claimants have 21 days to submit all pending documents from the date of their initial claim or their claim may be denied.
