NMDWS to Observe Upcoming Holidays

(Albuquerque, NM) - All New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions offices, including the unemployment insurance call center, will be closed in observance of Christmas on Monday, December 26, 2011 and New Year’s on Monday, January 2, 2012. The unemployment insurance claims system website, www.dws.state.nm.us, will be available from 3 a.m.-8 p.m. daily, and the unemployment insurance toll-free telephone option, 1-877-664-6984, will be available 24-hours a day for normal self-service functions.
