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 21, 2011 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.
The NMDWS unemployment insurance call center will be open for regular business hours on February 21, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. The unemployment insurance claims system can also be accessed through the website, www.dws.state.nm.us, and will be available 3 a.m. – 8 p.m. daily. The unemployment insurance toll-free phone option, 1-877-NM-4-MYUI (1-877-664-6984), will be available 24 hours a day for normal self-service functions.
