How May We Help You?

I truly appreciate the opportunity to hear from my fellow West Virginians. As your U.S. Senator, I am proud to be your voice with government agencies during your time of need. My goal is to provide top-notch customer service for every West Virginian who contacts me, or who may need help.  I have a team of caseworkers in each of my four offices to help you with matters of concern. While I have no direct jurisdiction in the administrative matters of any federal, state, or local agency, I welcome the opportunity to assist you with whatever problem you may be experiencing and ask that full consideration be given to your case.

Recently my office was able to assist Mr. Rodney Nelson of Chapmanville with his claim for Social Security disability.  Mr. Nelson had worked 18 years in the mines and became totally and permanently disabled in a workplace accident.  Gerrie Greene, caseworker in my Washington, DC office assisted Mr. Nelson in communicating with the Social Security Administration to ensure that all of his medical documentation had been submitted appropriately and that his case was reviewed.  Mr.  Nelson was advised this month that he was approved for his disability benefits.  If you know of someone in need of assistance with Social Security benefits, Black Lung disability, veterans issues, healthcare or recognition, please let me know.
