Regular weekly unemployment insurance benefits to continue

The New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions (NMDWS) was notified by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that the last week for the Lost Wages Assistance (LWA) benefits program was September 5, 2020 due to the fund’s depletion. As a result of this announcement, NMDWS cannot extend LWA payments beyond that date.
