Jeff is committed to helping constituents deal with problems related to federal agencies and ensuring that every Oregonian receives the government benefits they are entitled to.
Paul Ley reached out to Jeff when the Social Security Administration (SSA) failed to update his address after he had moved from New Mexico to Oregon in September 2016. As a result, he no longer received payments from his Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). Paul was assigned a hearing slot before an Administrative Law Judge, but the hearing was to be held in New Mexico. Jeff’s team set to work moving the hearing to a more accessible location. Ultimately, Mr. Ley was able to have his hearing moved to the first available slot at the SSA hearings office in Eugene. Shortly after his hearing, Mr. Ley called Jeff’s team to inform them that he had once again successfully obtained his SSDI benefits.
Jeff understands that Social Security benefits are essential to many Oregonians, and he and his team members are happy to aid constituents like Mr. Ley with navigating the bureaucracy to access their benefits.
