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. My staff is available 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 is given to your case.

Michael Canterbury contacted the Senator on April 27, 2018 for help obtaining his disability benefits due to a severe heart condition that gradually stopped him from being able to work. Caseworker for the Senator, Angie Walsh, made an inquiry to Social Security and as a result, Mr. Canterbury received a favorable decision in early April of this year.
