This notice announces a change in benefit period eligibility under the EB program for New Mexico.

The following change has occurred since the publication of the last notice regarding New Mexico's EB status:

  • New Mexico's TUR for July 2009, released on August 21, 2009, by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, brought its three-month average seasonally adjusted TUR to the threshold for triggering “on” to an extended benefit period. For weeks of unemployment beginning on September 6, 2009, eligible unemployed workers will be able to collect up to an additional 13 weeks of unemployment insurance benefits.

Information for Claimants

The duration of benefits payable in the EB program, and the terms and conditions on which they are payable, are governed by the Federal-State Extended Unemployment Compensation Act of 1970, as amended, and the operating instructions issued to the states by the U.S. Department of Labor. In the case of a state beginning an EB period, the State Workforce Agency will furnish a written notice of potential entitlement to each individual who has exhausted all rights to regular benefits and is potentially eligible for EB (20 CFR 615.13 (c) (1)). Persons who believe they may be entitled to EB or who wish to inquire about their rights under the program should contact their State Workforce Agency.
