If you lost your job at no fault of your own, then it is important to file your claim right away. Creating an account and registering in the New Mexico Workforce Connection system is required within 14 days of your initial claim for Unemployment Insurance benefits. Also, unless the New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions exempts you from work search activities, you must complete at least two work searches each week to receive benefits. At the time of filing you will need information including your Social Security Number, mailing address and phone number(s) of employer(s) you worked for in last 18 months. The starting and ending dates of your last job (or jobs if more than one employer in last 18 months). If you are a non-citizen, have your "A" number (Alien Registration Number) and expiration date. If you worked during the week you are filing your claim, be sure you know the gross amount (total dollars and cents before any deductions) of your pay before filing and more. To see if you are eligible to receive these benefits and what additional information is needed when applying, find out how to file your New Mexico unemployment claim. As a reminder, unemployment insurance benefits are taxable. You must report any unemployment benefits you receive as part of your gross income on your taxes.
