ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico labor officials are requiring people to set up new accounts to access online services for job searches and unemployment benefits.

The new login system is launching Wednesday and will allow people to access both the workforce connection system and the unemployment claims system.

The Department of Workforce Solutions says it has been working to simplify the login process so people don't have to remember multiple usernames and passwords for the two systems.

Officials say visitors to the site www.jobs.state.nm.us will be prompted to create a new single account to gain access to the online systems.

Users will need a valid email address that will be used for account management and security purposes.
