Congressman Tom Rice

Representing the 7th District of South Carolina

Agency Help

My office is here to help you break down bureaucratic walls at federal agencies. If you can't get an answer from a federal agency in a timely fashion, or if you feel you have been treated unfairly, my office may be able to help resolve a problem or get you the information you need. While we cannot guarantee you a favorable outcome, we get to "yes" more than our fair share and will do our best to help you receive a fair and timely response to your problem.

Residents of the 7th Congressional District of South Carolina can contact me for assistance in dealing with federal agencies. In order to better serve you, the below form will generate a printable page that you should sign and mail to my office.

Please include all pertinent information and claim numbers in your correspondence, such as:

  • Your Social Security number for a case involving Social Security;
  • VA claim number for a case with Department of Veterans Affairs;
  • Taxpayer identification number (Social Security number, if individual) for an Internal Revenue Service problem, etc.;
  • Your address, home phone number and daytime phone number (if different than home) so that we can obtain any additional information from you that might be necessary;
  • Copies of any related documents or correspondence that you may have from the agency involved

Please Note:

Pursuant to current law, members of Congress or their staff must have written authorization before they can obtain information about an individual's case. We must have your signature before proceeding with this type of request.

What are these options?
This is to help the constituents that are hard of hearing or use a video phone alert us to that fact so we can use the proper technology when we need to call them. The default option “Voice” is a normal audible telephone.
