BERNARDSVILLE, NJ (Somerset County) – Congressman Tom Kean, Jr. (NJ-07) Friday announced that his casework team has returned more than $6,200,000 to constituents.

Since the office opened in January of 2023, Congressman Kean and his team have closed over 2,100 constituent cases, representing over $6,200,000 dollars returned back to New Jerseyans in the 7th District.

From the beginning of Congressman Kean’s term in office, Team Kean has closed close to 132 cases per month, helping constituents save money and obtain benefits from the VA, IRS, Social Security Administration, and other federal agencies. The top three groups of people served are seniors, veterans, and families.

“I came to Congress to fight for New Jerseyans so that everyone in our community has the support and resources they need to thrive,” Kean said. “From getting back their hard-earned social security or working with the IRS, Team Kean is here to help. I am thankful for the hard work of our constituent services team who proudly put their all into helping every constituent in need.”

Team Kean received the following message from Emma in Sparta after helping to resolve an issue with a government agency: “I’m extremely happy and I feel so honored to have Congressman Kean. You have helped me and my husband so much and I cannot thank you enough! You were extremely helpful. Thank you so much again for your help. We’re so thankful. Thank you!”
