U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) and his staff have helped 3,763 constituents resolve cases before federal agencies this year, a 20 percent increase over the number assisted in 2022. The constituent service work resulted in more than $20 million being returned to Hoosier taxpayers.
Since joining the Senate in 2017, Senator Young has helped 14,438 Hoosiers recover approximately $87 million from federal agencies.
This year, the Young office saw a surge in passport cases as a result of a large backlog at the Department of State that caused travel worries for hundreds of Hoosier families. In 2023, Senator Young’s office helped process 1,076 passports.
The vast majority of the money recovered this year and returned to Hoosiers came from IRS cases. Senator Young helped Hoosiers recover nearly $17.4 million owed to them by the IRS. An additional $2.6 million was recovered from Social Security and VA claims.
“Helping Hoosiers navigate federal red tape has always been a top priority for me and our team,” Senator Young said. “We take every call that comes in seriously, and our team is committed to helping Hoosiers resolve issues involving federal agencies.”
Senator Young’s office also helped eleven families complete international adoptions and aided 26 family groups still stranded in Afghanistan following U.S. withdrawal in 2021.
