It is important to have a valid email address for both the New Mexico Workforce Connection Online System (www.jobs.state.nm.us) and the new Unemployment Insurance Tax & Claims System.
The Unemployment Insurance Tax & Claims System will provide electronic correspondence to you regarding the activity on your claim for UI benefits. In order to receive electronic notifications and correspondence in your "inbox" in the new system, you must have a valid email address. If you do not have an email address, there are many services that offer free email accounts. Examples of some of these services include: Yahoo, AOL, Google, and Microsoft Outlook.
