Help with a Federal Agency
If you can't get an answer from a federal agency in a timely fashion, or if you feel you have been treated unfairly, our office may be able to help resolve a problem or get you the information you need. While we cannot guarantee you a favorable outcome, we will do our best to help you receive a fair and timely response to your problem.
Residents of the 6th Congressional District of Illinois can contact our office for assistance in dealing with Federal agencies. In order to support you in resolving your situation, our office must receive the following items:
- A completed Casework Intake Form or letter detailing the history of the problem and your desired resolution
- Photocopies of supporting documentation (if applicable)
- Signed Privacy Act release form
NOTE: If you are are seeking assistance with an immigration or visa matter, please use this Privacy Act release form instead.
