The state of New Mexico announced that the department of Workforce Solutions will soon launch a new unemployment insurance tax and claims system.
DWS said this will significantly improve the efficiency of New Mexico's unemployment insurance program.
The new system will enable claimants to conduct routine business online such as applying for benefits, requesting payments, maintaining account information, and responding to requests for information.
The system was scheduled to be up and running beginning Jan. 6 at www.DWS.state.nm.us .
Customer service agents will be available Monday, Jan. 7 and can be reached at 1-877-664-6984.
