How Do I File for Unemployment Insurance?
Go to your Department of Labor local workforce development center. Bring your social security card and the names and addresses of the places you worked during the past 18 months. Also, bring separation papers from last employer, if available. For UI Claim Forms and the Handbook Click here.

In New Mexico, your claim is based on wages you earned in a 12-month period and never based on wages for the last three months prior to filing your claim. You must have wages in two different quarters of that 12-month period. There are legal minimums that must be earned during this period, but generally, anyone who works five months will be monetarily eligible.
