WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Scott Peters (CA-52) announced his office secured a total of $7,327,908 in earned benefits recovered for residents of the San Diego region he represents. Rep. Peters’ team has helped thousands of San Diegans navigate government bureaucracy to apply, appeal, or obtain various federal benefits or refunds they are owed and have earned. These services are provided to the people he represents at no cost by the staff who work in his district office.
As a Member of Congress, Rep. Peters’ office offers a wide range of constituent services and provides assistance securing military and veteran benefits, social security payments, Medicare and Medicaid coverage, immigration and visa updates, housing support, IRS and tax services, and student loans and loan forgiveness among others.
“Delivering for San Diego means direct and constant contact with individuals in need. Our office works year-round to assist San Diegans with passport renewals, small business loans, COVID-19 emergency relief, and access to the benefits owed to veterans and active duty military and their families,” said Rep. Peters. "I owe this milestone to the relentless efforts of my staff who ensure the people I represent receive the funds and benefits they’ve earned with their service to our nation, through lifetimes of hard work and paying taxes, or through their commitment to higher education. My job title is representative; that means we represent the people we serve with tireless advocacy day in and day out.”
