Cortez Masto Touts Casework Success, Encourages Nevadans Needing Assistance with Federal Agencies to Contact Office

Washington, D.C. – In the past year, the Office of U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) has helped over 1,800 Nevadans with requests for assistance navigating federal agencies and government programs. Recently, Senator Cortez Masto helped Robin from Southern Nevada secure more than $4,000 in back pay on her Social Security benefit, and helped Dawn from Reno hold Wells Fargo accountable when they refused to refund payment on a fraudulently endorsed check. Additional examples of the senator’s recent casework successes can be found in her Annual Report.

Senator Cortez Masto and her staff continue to help Nevadans secure delayed Social Security checks, enroll in Medicare and Medicaid, access VA services and navigate the immigration system, amongst other services for Nevadans.

“I was elected by Nevadans to serve them in the United States Senate,” said Senator Cortez Masto. “Whether you voted for me or not, I want all Nevadans to know I’m here to serve them. My staff and I are doing that every day through our casework program. I’ll continue to work to put Nevada families first, and I encourage all Nevadans who need help navigating federal agencies and government programs to reach out to my office for assistance.”
