Working for Maryland’s Veterans

July 23, 2019

Dear Friend,

Last Saturday, I held a Veterans Benefits Workshop at Lindale Middle School in Linthicum Heights.

During the event – pictured below – representatives from the Baltimore VA Regional Office held an information session about the new choices available to veterans as a result of the Appeals Modernization Act and how it can help veterans receive prompt decisions regarding their claims. The VA Baltimore Regional Office was also on hand to provide personalized, one-on-one assistance to help veterans learn more about pending claims.

I want to thank the more than 100 attendees who braved the extreme heat to join the workshop. For veterans who could not make the event, do not worry. My office is ready and able to assist you. We can contact the VA to access information about your pending claim or appeal. And, if you are not a resident of Maryland’s Third Congressional District, we can connect you with our counterparts in your appropriate Congressional office. To request an inquiry with the VA regarding your pending claim, please call us at (410) 832-8890.

In addition, veterans may also be interested in the below resources.

As always, if you or a veteran you know needs help accessing benefits, please contact my office at (410) 832-8890.

Sincerely,

JPSS_Signature

Congressman John Sarbanes
