You can always contact Congresswoman Pelosi's office at (415) 556-4862 for assistance with a federal agency. However, you may be able to resolve concerns on your own with the answers to several of the most frequently asked questions on the following topics:
- Federal Casework
- Immigration Services
- Internal Revenue Service
- International Travel, Passports, Visas and Children & Family Issues
- Military Personnel
- Postal Service (USPS)
- Social Security
- Student Loans
- Veterans Affairs
- Unemployment Insurance
Caseworkers work to address problems or concerns a resident of the 12th District of California may have with a federal government agency. Examples include problems receiving Social Security benefits, disability, or difficulties with visa applications. Although Members of Congress cannot guarantee a particular outcome, if you live in California's 12th Congressional District, Congresswoman Pelosi's office will work to help you receive a fair and timely response to your problem. If you are not sure which congressional district you live in, please visit www.house.gov. You can enter your address and zip code to determine your Congressional Representative.
Congresswoman Pelosi's office cannot help you if your problem is not with a federal agency. Due to the Constitutional separation of powers between the three branches of government, judicial matters (matters which involve courts) do not fall under Congresswoman Pelosi's jurisdiction as a U.S. Representative.
Further, problems which involve California State agencies are not under Congresswoman Pelosi's jurisdiction as a U.S. Representative. State and local issues are handled by your elected state and local representatives. You can find their contact information by visiting www.statelocalgov.net/state-ca.cfm or www.sfgov.org.
