Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Give me a couple of minutes to research and respond here, thanks.

Thanks for your patience.New Mexico here does not offset UI benefits if you are receiving social security based on retirement age not disability.Some other states do this but not New Mexico here.


You should get full UI benefits here, you have to do your work search and any other requirements to keep receiving for the 26 weeks.

I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.
