Available Presidential Greetings

Due to the Presidential Transition, the White House Correspondence Office is temporarily closed and as a result, no Presidential Greetings can be requested at this time.

Regrettably, the White House Correspondence Office will remain temporarily unavailable until the new Administration determines their greetings policies and procedures and announce a reactivation date.  

After the inauguration, please check my website regularly for updates regarding the reactivation of Presidential Greetings. Once my office receives guidance from the new Administration, we will begin processing greeting requests accordingly.

Thank you for your patience.

  • Birthday greetings (for persons 80 years of age or over)
  • Anniversary greetings (for couples celebrating 50 years of marriage or more)
  • Wedding (send your request after the event)

What are these options?
This is to help the constituents that are hard of hearing or use a video phone alert us to that fact so we can use the proper technology when we need to call them. The default option “Voice” is a normal audible telephone.
