Webster Gets $1 Million Returned to Constituents in 2022

Leesburg, FL – Today, Florida Congressman Daniel Webster, R-Clermont, announced that in the first two months of 2022, over $1 million was returned to constituents who contacted his office for help with issues before the IRS, VA, Social Security and more. Since January 2017, working on behalf of voters in his district, Webster’s office has gotten more than $16 million returned to constituents from owed tax returns, pension benefits or other retroactive payments.

“Providing my constituents with first-class assistance with issues involving federal agencies is one of my top priorities,” said Rep. Webster. “Too often, Americans attempting to secure the veteran benefits, IRS or Social Security payments they have earned are met with delays. I am pleased that we have been able to intercede on behalf of so many constituents to ensure they receive the services and compensation they have earned.”

Webster’s constituent services staff work diligently with agency liaisons on a constituent’s behalf to answer questions, find solutions, or simply attempt to cut through the red tape. Recently, a veteran from Leesburg contacted the office because he had received a favorable VA decision letter, but had not received his retro or monthly benefit. The office submitted an inquiry on the veteran’s behalf and was notified a retro check of over $10,000 was being direct deposited to the constituent.

Webster added, “I am committed to continuing to work to improve the quality, effectivity and efficiency of our federal agencies.”
