Mobile Office Hours
On August 29, 2012, my staff will be available to assist you with casework at the Mid-Continent Public Library, South Independence Branch. The Mobile Office will bring the office and all its capabilities to you, in your neighborhood.
How can we help?
Social Security and Medicare: We can help senior citizens with the process of obtaining Social Security benefits, as well as disability, survivor and SSI benefits. Additionally, my office can provide information on Medicare eligibility and assist with reimbursement difficulties.
Citizenship and Immigration: We can assist you in the application process for United States citizenship. Additionally, my office can give information on immigrant visas, as well as visitor visas for friends and family who might want to visit.
Veterans Services: If you are a veteran experiencing difficulty with your benefits, we can help you with information on eligibility requirements, heath care availability at VA hospitals and both retirement and survivor benefits.
Service Academy Nominations: Each year, I accept applications from high school seniors for nominations to America’s service academies: Army, Navy, Airforce, and Merchant Marine, as well as information on applying to the Coast Guard Academy. In the competitive selection process, applications are reviewed and interviews are conducted to determine the qualified recipients. You should contact my office in March of your junior year to begin the application process, but if you have general questions about the process, we can address them at any time.
Please know that my Independence and Kansas City offices are open during regular business hours, and you can give us a call at any time.
