Representative Sean Patrick Maloney announced his staff will be available for Satellite Office Hours in Carmel, Middletown and Poughkeepsie beginning this month. In addition to normal office hours in Rep. Maloney's district office in Newburgh, satellite office hours will offer constituents to visit have the opportunity to share any questions, comments or concerns with a constituent advocate, who is available to assist with any problems folks from the Hudson Valley may be having with a federal government agency, such as the Social Security Administration, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or the Veterans Administration.
"I'm here to work for folks in the Hudson Valley, and our office is here to be their advocate and help cut through any bureaucratic red tape of the federal government," said Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney. "Too often people feel like no one is fighting for them, and while my district office in Newburgh is at the crossroads of the district, holding satellite office hours will allow my constituent advocates to be more accessible to folks all across the Hudson Valley."
Representative Maloney's office has handled over 1,000 new cases, and so far, Rep. Maloney has helped return $1,111,369 to Hudson Valley taxpayers who were owed Social Security checks, veterans' benefits, tax refunds and other payments from the federal government.
