My staff and I can assist you if you are a resident of Minnesota and are having trouble with an agency of the federal government. (If you are not a Minnesotan your can find the contact information for your senator at Senate.gov.) For example, you might need help receiving your Social Security disability or resolving difficulties with your federal income tax. This is called casework. Because it so often involves working directly with Minnesotans, casework is done from my Minnesota offices.
Some problems, such as those involving legal matters or issues with an agency of the state government, are outside of my purview. You can use the information here to help you determine whether your case is one my staff can assist with. If not, we will be sure to help connect you with someone who can.
Please review all of the information here carefully so that you don't miss important information that could impact your case or the ability of my office to help you with it. Below are the four steps you will follow to open a case with my office:
