Overview

My office provides a number of services directly to residents of the 2nd Congressional District, detailed in the menu to the left. In many cases, my office can assist you if you are experiencing issues with the federal government. More on those services is below.

Help with a Federal Agency

From issues involving Social Security to immigration to Medicare, my office has helped hundreds of constituents experiencing issues and problems with federal agencies. If you reside in Washington State’s 2nd Congressional District and are seeking assistance with a federal agency, my office is here to help.  Please contact my Everett office, fill out a privacy release form including your address and phone number so that my staff can contact you. Copies of any documents or correspondence that you have had with the agency may also be helpful. Not every issue can be resolved, but my staff and I will do our best to assist you.

The Privacy Act of 1974 requires that Members of Congress and their staff have written authorization before they can obtain information about an individual's case. Please fill out the privacy release form HERE.

In the 114th Congress, my office assisted more than 700 constituents who faced issues with federal agencies.

Mobile Office Hours

Each month, my staff hold “mobile office hours” to provide constituents assistance with federal agencies, including issues such as:

  • Social Security Administration benefits
  • Department of Veterans Affairs disability claims
  • IRS refund issues
  • U.S. immigration matters
  • Office of Personnel Management retirement benefits

Anyone unable to attend this event may call (425) 252-3188 to schedule a meeting in one of the district offices.

Additionally, meetings with casework staff in the Bellingham office occur the 3rd Thursday of each month and are available by appointment.
