Just Three Weeks After Surpassing $8 Million, the Congresswoman’s Office Surpassed $9 Million Returned to Central Virginians Since Taking Office in January 2019

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Just three weeks after exceeding $8 million, U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger today announced that her office has exceeded $9 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 having issues with a federal agency, program, or benefit. Recently, Spanberger’s office has maintained their work on typical casework concerns, like Social Security, Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits, and Medicare, while also adapting to needs like securing Internal Revenue Service (IRS) refunds and addressing U.S. passport delays.

Since taking office on January 3, 2019, Spanberger’s office has closed 2,560 cases for Central Virginians and returned $9,435,636.

“As a Member of the U.S. House of Representatives, my first priority is to serve the people I represent,” said Spanberger. “That starts with fighting for the fair treatment and earned benefits of all Seventh District residents who need assistance. Each day, my constituent services team goes to work to advocate for every person living in the Seventh District, and returning another one million dollars to Central Virginians in just over three weeks would not be possible without them. If any of our neighbors are having trouble with a federal agency, program, or benefit — or have additional questions about how our team can help them, I strongly encourage them to reach out directly to our office.”
