Getting help during the government shutdown

getting help during the government shutdown

The government shutdown is going to create a number of problems for Iowans.

For example, more than 1,000 Iowa National Guard employees will likely be furloughed. Processing of Social Security and veterans benefit applications could be delayed. Enrollment in farm programs administered by the Agriculture Department will likely be halted.

I've instructed my staff to do everything within our ability to help Iowans negatively affected by a shutdown, even while my office is short-staffed.

If you’re experiencing a problem that needs urgent attention but are unable to receive the help you need because of the government shutdown, I’ll do everything I can to help.
