ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico’s unemployment insurance operations center will be closed Monday for Columbus Day, but state officials say online and automated toll-free telephone systems will continue to be available.

The Department of Workforce Solutions says individuals can apply for unemployment benefits, certify for their weekly benefit claim and check the status of their claim through the website Sunday through Friday from 4 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The operations center will resume normal hours on Tuesday and customer service agents will be available from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The department says holiday closings of banks and the U.S. Postal Service could cause a delay in transactions for unemployment insurance debit cards, direct deposits of benefit payments and checks that are mailed.

The department’s offices across the state will be closed Monday.
