Washington, D.C. – On Tuesday, June 23rd the staff of U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (R-TX) will host their monthly “Mobile Office Hours” to conveniently provide Collin County constituents with federal agency assistance.  June’s Mobile Offices will be located in Frisco, Plano West, Wylie, and Princeton (times and specific locations listed below). Appointments are not necessary.  

At each Mobile Office, folks will also able to pick up nomination forms for Congressman Johnson’s annual Congressional Veterans Commendation (CVC) ceremony held in the fall. This program is designed to publicly recognize the wartime sacrifices and peacetime community involvement of Collin County veterans.  More information about the CVC can be found HERE.

“Dealing with federal agencies can be very confusing, and a top priority of mine is ensuring my staff and I provide you with help – whether that’s helping you navigate steps or making requests on your behalf,” said Johnson.  “Maybe you need help with veteran benefits, a problem with the IRS, or emergency passport assistance for summer travel.  I encourage people to visit the nearest Mobile Office location on June 23rd, but if you are unable to make it, you are always welcome to contact my Plano office at 469-304-0382.” 

Johnson’s staff can help with federal agency issues, such as:

  • Medicare;
  • Veterans Affairs (VA);
  • Home foreclosure;
  • Social Security; and
  • Internal Revenue Service.

In addition, Johnson’s staff can also:

  • Help with overseas adoptions;
  • Provide information regarding trips to Washington, D.C.;
  • Offer application guidance to a U.S. Service Academy;
  • Assist with Congressional Youth Advisory Council (CYAC) applications; and
  • Process requests to have American flags flown over the U.S. Capitol building.

Please be aware that Congressman Johnson is elected to serve in the legislative branch of our nation's federal government. He does not have jurisdiction to assist with the following:

  • Agency decisions made in line with federal law or regulation;
  • Problems with a state or local government agency – you must contact your state or local officials for help regarding these issues;
  • Judicial matters; and
  • Private disputes. Examples of these issues are: Child Custody, Divorce, and Criminal Trials or Imprisonment.

Please also be aware that, in order for Congressman Johnson’s staff to make inquiries on constituents’ behalf, the Privacy Act of 1974 requires a privacy release be signed before the agency is contacted.  If you are represented by counsel, their permission to assist with the case is also required. Make sure to bring all relevant documents so staff is able to help you as expediently as possible.
