Unemployment Insurance Operations Center Closed Thursday and Friday
All New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions’ offices, including the Unemployment Insurance (UI) Operations Center, will be closed Thursday and Friday, November 24-25, 2016 in observance of Thanksgiving. The department urges claimants to plan accordingly. Individuals can apply for Unemployment Insurance (UI), certify for their weekly claim, and check their claim status by logging in at www.jobs.state.nm.us, Sunday through Friday from 4 a.m. to 9 p.m. The Operations Center will resume normal hours on Monday, November 28, and individuals can contact a Customer Service Agent in the NMDWS UI Operations Center at 1-877-664-6984 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
NMDWS would like to remind all eligible UI claimants that Thursday, November 24 is a federal holiday. Some banking institutions and the US Postal Service will be closed in observance of Thanksgiving. This may result in a delay of banking transactions for UI debit card and direct deposit benefit payment recipients. This will also result in a delay of mail delivery for a small portion of UI claimants who receive checks.
