The Congresswoman’s Office Has Closed 2,090 Constituent Cases for Central Virginians

HENRICO, V.A. – Today, U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger announced that her office has surpassed $6 million in casework funds returned to constituents in Virginia’s Seventh District.
 
Casework dollars are secured and returned by fighting for backlogged benefits and advocating for fair treatment on behalf of constituents dealing with a federal agency or program. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Spanberger’s office has maintained their work on typical casework concerns while also adapting to new needs like securing IRS refunds, locating lost stimulus checks, and helping bring home constituents who have been stranded abroad.
 
Since taking office on January 3, 2019, Spanberger’s team has closed 2,090 cases for Central Virginians and returned more than $6,098,450.
 
“Whether we agree on every issue or not, my first responsibility is to serve the people of Virginia’s Seventh District. I’m proud that my office has built a strong constituent services team that can efficiently and effectively advocate for all Central Virginians who are experiencing issues with federal agencies, programs, or benefits.” said Spanberger. “Continuously reaching these milestones is only possible because of my dedicated team making themselves accessible to the people we serve. If anyone here in Central Virginia is having trouble with a federal agency or has additional questions about how our office can help them, I strongly encourage them to reach out directly to our office.”
