WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger announced that her office has surpassed $12 million in casework funds returned to constituents in Virginia’s Seventh District — including more than $1.6 million since the beginning of 2022.
Casework dollars are secured and returned by fighting for backlogged benefits and advocating for fair treatment on behalf of constituents having issues with a federal agency, program, or benefit. Spanberger’s office has maintained their work on typical casework concerns, like Social Security, Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits, and Medicare, while also adapting to increased needs as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, such as securing delayed Internal Revenue Service (IRS) refunds and supporting small businesses applying for emergency loans.
Since taking office on January 3, 2019, Spanberger’s office has closed 4,181 cases for Virginians and returned $12,198,574.99.
“Serving the people of Virginia’s Seventh District is always my top priority, and I’m proud my office has been able to secure more than $12 million in backlogged benefits, returned funds, and payoff of overdue claims to Virginians,” said Spanberger. “This milestone could not have been reached without the committed advocacy of my constituent services team, who fight each day for the fair treatment and earned benefits of our neighbors in need of assistance. If you are experiencing an issue with any federal agency, program, or benefit, our office may be able to help resolve the issue or get you the information you need.”
