WASHINGTON – The process of getting assistance from a government agency is often difficult and in many cases ends in frustration with no resolution. However, there is help.

The office of U.S. Representative Jeff Denham (R-Turlock) has long offered assistance to constituents needing someone to intervene on their behalf on a variety of issues including (but not limited to) veteran’s affairs, immigration, Social Security and issues with the Internal Revenue Service.

Rep. Denham and his staff recently helped a local veteran get the VA benefits he earned – a story that was featured in Rep. Denham’s weekly e-newsletter. The following is an excerpt from his story:

“Upon leaving the service, Larry (Hite) was told that he would be taken care of in terms of his benefits – including his medical care. During his unemployment, Larry used his VA card very few times and stopped using it once he was employed again. 

“However, when Larry fractured his wrist and turned to the VA for treatment, he was told that he no longer qualified for VA benefits.

“Upon a recommendation from a friend who had received similar help, Larry decided to contact my office.  

“‘Almost two weeks to the day later, I got a call from the VA,’ said Larry. He received new benefits that aligned with the changes in the law and received the treatment that any veteran deserves.”

Constituents of the 10th congressional district in need of assistance are encouraged to contact Rep. Denham’s Modesto office at 209-579-5458 or visit his website at https://denham.house.gov/constituent-services/casework/.
