Sam Johnson Staff Offer Federal Agency Assistance

by | Oct 11, 2016 | Latest

The staff of U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03) will host their monthly “Mobile Office Hours” on Wednesday, Oct. 12. Folks living in the Third District who need assistance in dealing with a federal agency are encouraged to attend. October’s Mobile Offices will be located in Frisco, Richardson, Anna, and Fairview (times and specific locations listed below). Appointments are not necessary.

“Dealing with federal agencies can be frustrating, whether it’s getting veteran benefits or a service medal you earned, help with Social Security or Medicare, or even passport assistance,” said Johnson. “While my staff and I offer assistance every day, sometimes a phone call or a trek out to our Plano office isn’t the best option for folks. That is why I’m proud to offer these monthly Mobile Office Hours. Folks can come out to one of these locations and ask my staff questions or get help with various issues in person. We are also happy to make requests on your behalf to federal agencies. I encourage people to visit the nearest Mobile Office location on Oct. 12, but if you are unable to make it, you are always welcome to contact my Plano office at 469-304-0382.”

Johnson’s staff can help with federal agency issues, such as: identity theft, Medicare, Veterans Affairs (VA), home foreclosure, Social Security and Internal Revenue Service.

In addition, Johnson’s staff can also: help with overseas adoptions, provide information regarding trips to Washington, D.C., offer application guidance to a U.S. Service Academy, assist with Congressional Youth Advisory Council (CYAC) applications and process requests to have American flags flown over the U.S. Capitol building.

Please be aware that Congressman Johnson is elected to serve in the legislative branch of our nation’s federal government. He does not have jurisdiction to assist with the following: Agency decisions made in line with federal law or regulation; Problems with a state or local government agency – you must contact your state or local officials for help regarding these issues; Judicial matters; and Private disputes. (Examples of these issues are Child Custody, Divorce, and Criminal Trials or Imprisonment.)

In order for Congressman Johnson’s staff to make inquiries on constituents’ behalf, the Privacy Act of 1974 requires a privacy release be signed before the agency is contacted. If you are represented by counsel, their permission to assist with the case is also required. Make sure to bring all relevant documents so staff is able to help you as expediently as possible.
