What documents do I Need to file an unemployment claim in New Mexico

If you become unemployed you will have to file an initial claim and weekly claims in order to be eligible to receive unemployment insurance benefits. There are some important pieces of information you need to keep close to you while filing your claims:

  • You will be asked to provide your Social Security Number (SSN).

  • You have to provide mailing address and phone numbers of the employers you worked for during the past 18 months.

  • You will be required to enter the start and end dates of your last jobs for the past 18 months.

  • Your total wages earned with each employer and the periodicity of your salary.

  • You will have to answer questions about your reasons for leaving your last jobs.

  • If you are not a U.S. citizen you will be required to identify yourself using your Alien Registration Number and expiration date.

  • Workers who have been with the military in the past 18 months will have to mail a copy of the DD 214 form.

  • When filing weekly claims you will need to provide the name and phone number of your work search contacts, and the amount of money you received during the week as a result of remunerated work, if any.

  • Make sure you have these documents ready to speed up the process and avoid mistakes. All information provided must be true, complete and accurate. Double check your data to avoid incurring in fraud. If you submit fraudulent information you may be subject to the suspension of your unemployment insurance benefits. Always keep information regarding passwords and Personal Identification Numbers in a safe place; they will be requested later on when filing your claims.
