Washington, D.C. – On Wednesday, December 9th the staff of U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03) will host their monthly “Mobile Office Hours.”  This outreach program works to meet Collin County constituents at convenient locations across the districts in order to better help folks with federal agency assistance.  December’s Mobile Offices will be located in Murphy, Princeton, Plano East, and Richardson (times and specific locations listed below). Appointments are not necessary.

“Dealing with a federal agency can be very confusing and frustrating – whether it’s veteran benefits, a problem with the IRS, or Social Security – but you don’t have to do it alone,” said Johnson.  “My staff and I are happy to answer questions, help you navigate issues with federal agencies, and also make requests on your behalf to make this process easier.  I encourage people to visit the nearest Mobile Office location on December 9th, 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.
