Congressman Jason Crow Announces $1.02 Million Recovered for Constituents in 2019
Congressman Jason Crow today announced that his office helped recover more than $1.02 million owed to constituents from federal agencies such as the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Social Security Administration.
“Our work for Colorado’s 6th district begins with constituent casework. The team has crisscrossed the district to help Coloradans obtain benefits they have earned and cut through endless bureaucratic red tape. We’re proud of the impact we’ve been able to make in individual’s lives and encourage the community to continue to use us as a resource when dealing with federal issues,” said Rep. Jason Crow.
This year, Crow’s team has resolved 536 cases for constituents including over 100 cases for veterans. For example, in one case, they helped recover medals for the daughter of a WWII veteran.
“I wish to thank Congressman Jason Crow and his staff for coming to my rescue. My father, Lawrence M. Sierocuk, was a decorated WWII veteran. When assembling his medals, two Bronze Stars, a Purple Heart and Campaign Medals, for a display to honor my father’s heroism, I noticed I was missing a Bronze Star. Trying to navigate the VA website was confusing and difficult. When I attended one of Congressman Crow’s town hall meetings, I asked for help. Aly [from Crow’s office] sent me the VA documents I needed to replace the lost medal. In just a month, the missing Bronze Star arrived. Aly delivered it and made me cry. I thought I would never see that medal again. Both the Congressman and his staff are remarkable and they responded immediately to help me make the memorial for my father possible,” said Barbara Bundy, constituent of Colorado’s sixth district.
Congressman Crow’s constituent services team stands ready to assist residents of Colorado’s sixth district. If residents can't get an answer from a federal agency in a timely fashion, or just need help navigating the system, Crow’s team may be able to help resolve a problem or obtain pertinent information.
In April, Crow announced mobile office hours, a first of its kind program in the district that would bring the constituent service team directly to Coloradans. Over the course of the year, Crow’s constituent service team has held 35 mobile office hours across the district visiting libraries, non-profits, community centers, municipal buildings, recreation centers, hospitals, festivals and fairs in Brighton, Thornton, Highlands Ranch, Centennial, Littleton, Greenwood Village and Aurora.
Below are just a few issues with which Congressman Crow’s team can help.
- Social Security and Medicare
- Veterans’ Benefits
- IRS Issues
- Passports and Visas
- Student Loans
- Small Business Assistance
- Federal Grants and Loans
