Casework Success Stories
A note from Congressman Allred:
One of the most important parts of my job as your representative is helping North Texans resolve their issues with federal agencies. Navigating federal bureaucracies can be difficult, but my team and I are here to offer assistance. Whether you need help getting your tax refund, assistance in contacting the Department of Veterans Affairs, or help in obtaining your Social Security benefits, I am here to help cut red tape and make sure you get the answers you deserve.
Below are several casework success stories from North Texans who got the assistance they needed from my office. Take a look through them, and if you need help with a federal agency, call my office at 972-972-7949 or visit my federal agency help page at https://allred.house.gov/services/help-federal-agency.
