Help with the beneficiary feature


You may designate one or more beneficiaries to receive your pay should you pass away while you’re in State service.  This payment will include any remaining pay you are owed, as well as payment for any vacation that you’ve accrued.  You may designate a primary as well as contingent beneficiary/ies.  The contingent beneficiary/ies will be paid if the primary beneficiary/ies are not alive at the time of payment.

Note that this beneficiary designation is for payroll purposes only, and is separate from your beneficiary designation for other State of Hawaii benefit programs.

Beneficiaries must have a valid U.S. SSN or Tax ID number. Due to U.S. Treasury regulations, the State cannot disburse to foreign entities/persons.


Making changes

Your changes become effective immediately and your most recent designation of beneficiaries in HIP is what the State of Hawaii will use to pay your beneficiaries in the event you pass away.

Entering your beneficiary information in HIP, or making changes, will supersede any paper payroll beneficiary forms that you completed previously.
