How To Contact Your Representative Or Other Political Figures

The following is a list of links to various politicians and political entities that you may wish to contact regarding Social Security or anything else of concern to you. We included the White House, the House of Representatives (including the leadership positions and the Progressive and Tea Party Caucuses,) the Senate (including leadership positions,) and the Democratic and Republican National Committees. I have tested all the links and as of the date of this post they are good. If anyone encounters a bad link or a bad telephone number, please let me know.

We strongly urge all of our readers to contact at the least their own representatives and any others they want to. It is your right to “petition government for a redress of grievances” but please remember to do so politely, and never be threatening. Let them know what you think about what they are doing and what you would like them to do. It’s painless. I contact various people all the time. Please join us in this.

White House

Web page contact form: www.whitehouse.gov/contact.
(This is a contact form that requires your name, email address, and zip code to complete.)

President’s email address: president@whitehouse.gov.

Switchboard: 1-202-456-1414

Comments Line: 1-202-456-1111

Congress

Switchboard: 1-202-225-3121. You can call this number to reach any Representative’s or Senator’s office in the Capitol.

House Of Representatives

Web Page: www.house.gov.

On the home page, about half way down on the left side is a section which helps you find the web pages, email addresses, and telephone numbers of individual Representatives. This section (as it appears on August 28, 2011) is reproduced below:

The column on the left defaults to “Representative” but there are several choices. The column on the right has three choices. The first allows you to select a Representative’s Website from a drop down list of names. Most Representatives have a webpage, and you would use this to contact them in writing. The second and third choices allow you to find your Representative either by state (click the appropriate state), or by zip code. Many states have recently redistricted, so it’s possible that your Representative may have changed. I would suggest using zip code the first time you try this to make sure you are contacting the right Representative.

The phone numbers to the Representative’s district office(s) can be found on his or her individual webpages.
