Spanberger’s Office Passes $3 Million Secured & Returned To Seventh District Constituents

The Congresswoman’s Office Has Closed 1,384 Constituent Cases in the 594 Days Since She Took Office

Today, U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger announced that her office has passed $3 million in funds secured and returned to Seventh District constituents.

By fighting for backlogged benefits and fair treatment for Central Virginians, Spanberger’s team has returned $3,037,717 to constituents. Her office handles constituent issues pertaining to any federal program or agency, including the Department of Veterans Affairs, Social Security Administration, Medicare, Medicaid, U.S. State Department, Railroad Retirement Board, and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

Since taking office on January 3, 2019, Spanberger’s office has closed 1,384 constituent cases.

“My first responsibility is to serve the people of Virginia’s Seventh District, whether we agree on every issue or not. That duty always comes first. I’m proud that my office has built a strong constituent services operation that can efficiently and effectively advocate for all Central Virginians who are experiencing issues with federal agencies,” said Spanberger. “Each dollar we have returned to the pockets of our neighbors in Central Virginia represents a burden lessened, a wrong righted, or an anxiety lifted. We have successfully secured backlogged benefits and cut through red tape for hundreds of constituents, from every county in our district. Many of our neighbors depend on federal agencies and programs to access affordable healthcare and pay their monthly bills. I’m honored to advocate on their behalf when those critical benefits go awry. If any Seventh District resident is having issues with a federal agency and doesn’t know where to turn next, please call our office. We are here to walk with you through the process, advocate on your behalf, and act as a source of support in your corner.”
