Recently, a constituent from La Habra contacted my office regarding his disability benefits. The constituent stated that he was awarded disability benefits by the Social Security Administration (SSA), but he has yet to receive the award letter or the payment. However, the constituent needed a copy of the award letter to show a source of income to avoid foreclosure of his house in mid-April. After my office submitted an inquiry to the SSA, his case was flagged as “dire need,” and we were able to expedite the process.
