WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Rep. Rick Larsen (WA-02) released the fourth in his recurring series of posts to highlight people across Washington’s Second District that the office has assisted with casework.

In this edition, read about how the office supported Linda, a Stanwood resident, who reached out regarding her Department of Veterans Affairs claim.

After Linda’s initial claim for Survivor Dependent and Indemnity Compensation was denied, following the death of her husband in 2015, she requested assistance in ensuring her appeal was received and reviewed. Read the rest of Linda’s story and how Larsen’s office supported Linda here.

As a Member of Congress, Larsen is here to help support constituents and serve as a liaison with federal agencies. The office can support requests to clarify determinations, track the progress of applications or appeals and work with federal agencies to address specific issues constituents are facing.

Second District residents can reach out to the Everett District Office at 425-252-3188 for assistance with a federal agency.

During the 115th Congress, Larsen’s office helped 617 Second District residents with casework and recouped more than $2.77 million dollars in federal benefits.
