Assistance with a Federal Agency

If you can't get an answer from a federal agency in a timely fashion, or if you feel you have been treated unfairly, our office may be able to help resolve a problem or get you the information you need. While we cannot guarantee you a favorable outcome, we will do our best to help you receive a fair and timely response to your problem.

  • 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;

Your Information
Attach additional pages if necessary and include copies of all relevant documents received from the federal agency with which you seek assistance. Do not send original documents, as we cannot ensure their safe return.

What are these options?
Constituents who are hard of hearing or use a video phone have the option to choose TDD or VP based on the type of device they are using. This allows our office to respond to them accordingly. The default option "Voice" is a standard audible telephone.

Please do not include your social security number if your case inquiry is immigration-related. This form requires you to print, sign and mail, fax, or hand deliver the signed document. Your social security number will not be transmitted electronically.
