Tallahassee, FL - Local residents have had the opportunity to express concerns to staff members of U.S. Senator Marco Rubio. Mobile office hours have been held in Bristol, Blountstown, Quincy, Chattahoochee, and Tallahassee this week.
Staff members say people are worried about veterans affairs waiting periods, the backlog in disability determinations, and the appeals for people turned down for disability.
Brian Mimbs, Rubio's Regional Office Director, says, "We're trying to get these veterans the answers they need, get them answers quickly. A lot of these guys just don't have time to wait three years or four years to get a response. So, we're trying to make that happen for them as quickly as we can."
The mobile office hours allow residents to receive one-on-one assistance dealing with social security, medicare, immigration, the IRS, or any federal agency.
Anyone who couldn't make it this week can call 1-866-630-7106.
