Information for Congressional Staffs


Navy OLA receives over 4,000 Constituent inquiries a year.  Navy OLA processes and responds to inquiries from Members of Congress.  In order to ensure your inquiry is processed properly, the following is required: a cover letter signed by the Member of Congress, a Privacy Release form, a Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) form (DD2870) (if the issue is medically related), and a clear question or issue you would like the Navy to answer.


To ensure we can properly locate the individual for the inquiry, as much of the information below should be provided: Name, social security number, contact information, current command and/or command related to the inquiry. 


Normally, Congressional inquiries require a minimum of two weeks for a response.  For more time sensitive issues, Navy caseworkers can be reached at 703-614-3710.  If you have not heard a response after two weeks, contact the Navy caseworkers.
