Washington, D.C. – On Wednesday, October 7th the staff of U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03) will host their monthly “Mobile Office Hours” to provide Collin County constituents with federal agency assistance at convenient locations across the Third District.  October’s Mobile Offices will be located in Allen, Prosper, McKinney, and Sachse (times and specific locations listed below). Appointments are not necessary. 

“Whatever your issue may be with a federal agency – whether it’s veteran benefits, a problem with the IRS, or Social Security – navigating steps can be very confusing if you’re doing so alone,” said Johnson.  “My staff and I understand your frustrations and we’re happy to help you in dealing with federal agencies and making requests on your behalf to make this process easier.  I encourage people to visit the nearest Mobile Office location on October 7th, but if you are unable to make it, you are always welcome to contact my Plano office at 469-304-0382.” 

Johnson’s staff can help with federal agency issues, such as:

  • Medicare;
  • Veterans Affairs (VA);
  • Home foreclosure;
  • Social Security; and
  • Internal Revenue Service.

In addition, Johnson’s staff can also:

  • Help with overseas adoptions;
  • Provide information regarding trips to Washington, D.C.;
  • Offer application guidance to a U.S. Service Academy;
  • Assist with Congressional Youth Advisory Council (CYAC) applications; and
  • Process requests to have American flags flown over the U.S. Capitol building.

Please be aware that Congressman Johnson is elected to serve in the legislative branch of our nation's federal government. He does not have jurisdiction to assist with the following:

  • Agency decisions made in line with federal law or regulation;
  • Problems with a state or local government agency – you must contact your state or local officials for help regarding these issues;
  • Judicial matters; and
  • Private disputes. Examples of these issues are: Child Custody, Divorce, and Criminal Trials or Imprisonment.

Please also be aware that, in order for Congressman Johnson’s staff to make inquiries on constituents’ behalf, the Privacy Act of 1974 requires a privacy release be signed before the agency is contacted.  If you are represented by counsel, their permission to assist with the case is also required. Make sure to bring all relevant documents so staff is able to help you as expediently as possible.
