NMDWS Launches Work Search Verification Pilot Project

Increased efforts to verify UI required work search documentation

(Albuquerque, NM) – The New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions (NMDWS) has launched the Work Search Verification Pilot Project to address unemployment insurance (UI) program integrity and adherence to UI benefit requirements. All UI claimants are required to conduct a minimum of two work search contacts for each week that benefits are claimed, keep a record of those work search contacts, and provide the record to NMDWS upon request. NMDWS performs a random audit based on federal requirements; the Work Search Verification Pilot Project will increase the number and frequency of work search cases to be reviewed.
