(Albuquerque) - All New Mexico Department of Workforce
Solutions’ offices, including the Unemployment Insurance (UI) Operations
Center, will be closed Thursday and Friday, November 27-28, 2014 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 7 p.m. The Operations Center will resume normal hours on
Monday, December 1, 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 27 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.
Computers are available at the local New Mexico Workforce
Connection Centers and local libraries. A list of New Mexico Workforce Connection
Centers is available at www.dws.state.nm.us
by clicking “Office Locations.” Additional information about the UI program and
the NMDWS is available at www.dws.state.nm.us.
NMDWS has also launched the “Unemployment Insurance Informational Video
Series,” which includes the “What You Should Know About UI” video. The videos
are available on the NMDWS website at www.dws.state.nm.us,
under “Unemployment Insurance,” and “What You Should Know About UI.” For the
