ALBUQUERQUE – All New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions (NMDWS) offices, including the Unemployment Insurance (UI) Operations Center, will be closed Thursday and Friday in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday.
The department urges claimants to plan accordingly.
The Unemployment Insurance Tax & Claims System (www.jobs.state.nm.us) is available online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Customer Service Agents in the Unemployment Insurance Operations Center will be available when extended business hours resume at 7 a.m. Monday, Nov. 30.

NMDWS would like to remind all eligible UI claimants that Thursday, Nov. 26 is a federal holiday. Some banking institutions and the U.S. Postal Service will be closed in observance of Thanksgiving.
