NMDWS Reminds UI Claimants of Federal Holiday

Claimants Should Plan Accordingly for Presidents Day

(Albuquerque) – The New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions (NMDWS) would like to remind all eligible unemployment insurance claimants that Monday, February 19, 2018 is a federal holiday. Banking institutions and the US Postal Service will be closed in observance of Presidents Day. This will result in a delay of banking transactions for unemployment insurance debit card holders and direct deposit payment recipients. This will also result in a delay of mail delivery for unemployment insurance claimants who receive paper checks. The department urges claimants to plan accordingly.

New Mexico State government offices are open for business on Presidents Day, and therefore the NMDWS Unemployment Insurance (UI) Operations Center (1-877-664-6984) is open for regular business hours on February 19, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The UI Tax & Claims System (www.jobs.state.nm.us) is available online from 4:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Sunday through Friday.
