NEW BRITAIN, CT – February 26, 2014 – (RealEstateRama) — This week, Rep. Elizabeth Esty (CT-5) shared a “Constituent Corner” story from Thomas Campbell of Danbury. Mr. Campbell, a former Marine who was awarded a Purple Heart for his service, went months without receiving his Social Security benefits. Two months behind on his mortgage, Mr. Campbell faced pre-foreclosure on his home.
After, Mr. Campbell reached out to Esty’s office, her staff contacted the Social Security Administration and helped correct a clerical error, recovering Mr. Campbell’s benefits and ensuring timely payments moving forward.
“I never knew what a Member of Congress could do to help me. Others should give her a chance to help you out,” said Mr. Campbell. “Congresswoman Esty was a God-send. Without her, I’d probably be on the street today.”
Residents of Connecticut’s 5th District who are having issues with their Social Security benefits are encouraged to reach out to Rep. Esty’s office at 860-223-8412.
“Constituent Corner” highlights positive stories from folks who sought assistance with the federal government through Rep. Esty’s office. “When I talk with constituents after they’ve worked with my office, many of them ask me to share their stories so that others will know how to get help as well,” said Esty. “My office is here to cut through the red tape to help folks receive the benefits they have earned and better understand the federal programs that are out there.”
