Dollars are Secured by Fighting for Backlogged Benefits and Advocating for Fair Treatment by the Federal Government on Behalf of Virginians
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Just over one month after reaching the major milestone of $15 million, U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger today announced that her office has now surpassed $16 million in casework funds returned to constituents in Virginia’s Seventh District — including nearly $5.5 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 focused 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 4,792 cases for Virginians and returned $16,033,901.
“Serving the people of the Seventh District means making sure that Virginians are treated fairly by their government. This commitment requires fighting for every hard-earned dollar — every federal benefit for our brave veterans, every Social Security check, and every backlogged tax refund,” said Spanberger. “My team and I are dedicated to getting Virginians the help and information they need and the fair treatment they deserve. If you or your neighbors need assistance with a federal agency, program, or benefit, please be in touch with my office.”
