NMDWS Reminds Claimants to Plan Accordingly for Holiday Closures
Unemployment Insurance Tax & Claims Online System Available

(Albuquerque) – All New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions’ (NMDWS) offices, including the Unemployment Insurance (UI) Operations Center, will be closed on Tuesday, December 25, in observance of Christmas; and Tuesday, January 1, 2019, in observance of the New Year holiday. The department urges claimants to plan accordingly.

The Unemployment Insurance Tax & Claims System (www.jobs.state.nm.us) is available online from 4:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. Sunday through Friday. Customer Service Agents in the Unemployment Insurance Operations Center will be available when normal business hours resume on Wednesday, December 26, at 8:00 a.m. after the Christmas holiday, and Wednesday, January 2, following the New Year’s holiday. The normal business hours of the Unemployment Insurance Operations Center are 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

NMDWS would like to remind all eligible UI claimants that Tuesday, December 25, 2018 and Tuesday, January 1, 2018 are federal holidays. Most banking institutions and the US Postal Service will be closed in observance of Christmas and New Year’s. This may result in a delay of banking transactions for UI debit card and direct deposit benefit payment recipients. This may also result in a delay of mail delivery for UI claimants who receive checks.

Additional information about the Unemployment Insurance Program, the Unemployment Insurance Tax & Claims System, and the Department of Workforce Solutions is available on our website at www.dws.state.nm.us.
