Unemployed New Mexicans can expect a slew of changes to their unemployment benefits in the coming weeks and months, starting with the return of a mandate requiring them to search and apply for jobs.
The New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions held a webinar Wednesday explaining the decision to reinstate the work search requirement next week, the transition from state to federal unemployment benefits and other changes to the system.
“These benefits are not going to last forever, they’re going to run out,” said Workforce Solutions Secretary Bill McCamley during the event. “And that’s one of the reasons it’s really important for you to start looking around.”
