Unemployment Insurance Call Center Closed Monday
Automated Toll-Free Phone Options and Website Available
(Albuquerque) - The New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions’ unemployment insurance call center will be closed Monday, October 10, 2011 in observance of Columbus Day. The department urges claimants to plan accordingly.
The unemployment claims system website, www.dws.state.nm.us, will be available 3 a.m. – 8 p.m. daily, and the unemployment insurance toll-free phone option, 1-877-664-6984, will be available 24-hours a day for normal self service functions.
NMDWS would like to remind all eligible unemployment insurance claimants that Monday, October 10 is a federal holiday. Banking institutions and the US Postal Service will be closed in observance of Columbus Day. This will result in a delay of banking transactions for unemployment insurance debit card and direct deposit benefit payment recipients for those certifying on Sunday. This will also result in a delay of mail delivery for a small portion of unemployment insurance claimants who receive checks.
