One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help people with federal problems. Although I cannot override a federal agency's decisions, I may be able to intervene on your behalf to answer questions, find solutions or just cut through the red tape. Below you will find a list of some of the agencies with which I can help. However, regardless of which agency you need help with, I need a completed privacy authorization form.
Please include all pertinent information and claim numbers in your correspondence—such as:
- Your Social Security number for a case involving Social Security;
- VA claim number for a case with Department of Veterans Affairs;
- Taxpayer identification number (Social Security number, if individual) for an Internal Revenue Service problem, etc.;
- Your address, home phone number and daytime phone number (if different than home) so that we can obtain any additional information from you that might be necessary;
- Copies of any related documents or correspondence that you may have from the agency involved;
The Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. § 552a) requires that Members of Congress or their staff have written authorization before they can obtain information about an individual's case.
We must have your signature to proceed with this type of request.
