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, July 4, 2011 in observance of Independence Day. The department urges claimants to plan accordingly.
The unemployment 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 phone option, 1-877-664-6984, will be available 24-hours a day for normal self-service functions.
The department would like to remind all eligible unemployment insurance claimants that Monday, July 4, is a federal holiday. Banking institutions and the U.S. Postal Service will be closed in observance of Independence 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.
Monday is also a state holiday, and all New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions offices will be closed.
