PHOENIX – Today, Arizona Senator Mark Kelly announced that his office has returned more than $1 million to the people of Arizona.
In only seven months, Senator Kelly’s constituent services staff have closed more than 2,200 constituent cases and returned more than $1 million to Arizona taxpayers by cutting through red tape and getting them the benefits they were owed by the federal government.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Kelly’s staff has assisted Arizonans with issues relating to the economic and public health crisis and has been in constant contact with constituents to ensure they can access federal resources. Kelly’s staff has successfully helped several struggling small businesses access Paycheck Protection Program loans, expedited returns owed from the Internal Revenue Service, and secured backlogged benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the U.S. Social Security Administration.
“It is one of my greatest honors to serve Arizonans in the U.S. Senate, especially helping cut through the bureaucracy to get the benefits they’re owed. As we mark this milestone of $1 million dollars returned to Arizonans, I want everyone across the state to know that we are here to serve them. I encourage anyone who needs assistance to reach out to my office,” said Senator Kelly.
Kelly’s staff can assist constituents with a range of other federal issues involving veterans and active duty military, Social Security, Medicare, the Small Business Administration, Internal Revenue Service cases, immigration, passports, and others.
