Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs

The State of Hawaii Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs (DCCA) is a regulatory agency that promotes a strong and healthy business environment by upholding fairness and public confidence in the marketplace. The department also strives to increase knowledge and opportunity for businesses and individuals, and to protect consumers against unfair and deceptive business practices.

This military consumer guide was created to equip Hawaii’s service members and their families with information as the first line of defense against fraud. The guide will also enable our military community to make better and informed decisions when managing their money.

Hawaii is home to 47,000 active duty service members and 5,500 National Guard personnel—many of whom face unique challenges due to redeployments and permanent change of stations. With such a large population of transient consumers, there is the unfortunate likelihood of targeted fraud or unfamiliarity with state laws for these service members and their families.

This booklet seeks to offer comprehensive guidelines to protect oneself from fraudulent activities and provide the necessary information to live and work in the State of Hawaii. Information about various issues and consumer topics that often affect our military community are highlighted within. Some topics that will be covered are those about housing, buying a car, payday lending, identity theft and more. We also cover the laws created for our military families involving a professional license in Hawaii and give you the steps required to start your own business.

The information contained in this guide is intended to supplement the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (“SCRA”) 50 U.S.C. App. §§501-597b1, available at:
