Duckworth’s Office to Host Mobile Office Hours at Illinois State Fair Sunday

 

[SPRINGFIELD, IL] – The Office of U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) will host mobile office hours at the 2019 Illinois State Fair’s Veterans Benefit Expo this Sunday, August 11. Constituent service representatives from the Senator’s office will be onsite to assist Illinoisans with receiving the Veterans Affairs, Social Security, Medicare and other federal benefits to which they may be entitled. Sunday’s mobile office hours will be held from 10AM to 2PM CT, with additional mobile office hours taking place in communities throughout the state over the coming months to offer constituents who may not be able to drive to one of the Senator’s offices an opportunity to meet with her staff closer to home.

“Reaching as many Illinoisans as possible and talking about their concerns is one of my top priorities as Senator, and making my team available in every corner of the state helps,” Duckworth said. “These mobile office hours in Springfield will give hardworking Illinois families another opportunity to meet my staff, learn about federal resources available to them, cut through red tape and get the timely replies they deserve. My staff looks forward to hosting additional mobile office hours across Illinois in the days, weeks and months ahead.”

At Duckworth’s mobile office hours, constituents can also learn about the federal grant application process, service academy nominations and internship opportunities. Senator Duckworth has five offices across the state with locations in Chicago, Springfield, Carbondale, Rock Island and Belleville.
