Scenes From Our 100th Mobile Office
Nov 09 2015
I am proud of the work my staff has done to help Arkansans who are having problems with federal agencies.
We’ve been able to make a real difference in the lives of Arkansans, helping thousands of people with a wide range of matters involving federal agencies.
From the IRS, Social Security, Medicare, VA, international adoption, visas and many other issues, we can help navigate the roadblocks with government agencies.
My goal is to provide access to the help Arkansans need. Mobile office events are a critical component to delivering that service.
This morning, I joined members of my staff at the Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce for our 100th mobile office.
Since I began serving Arkansas in the U.S. Senate, my office has received more than 15,000 requests for assistance.
Here are some examples of issues my office has been able to resolve:
- A widow whose husband had been approved for Social Security benefits but never received his back-pay.
- A couple went to Florida to get on a cruise and realized they had lost their passports on the drive down.
- A Korean War veteran who sought VA compensation for radiation exposure during his service in the Navy.
- An Arkansan teaching in China had a stroke in the Beijing airport. His family needed help to get him safely back to Arkansas
If you need assistance with a federal agency, here is more information on how we can help.
