How Will a Shutdown Affect You?

A list of government agencies and how you might be affected during a shutdown.

How Will a Shutdown Affect You?

A government shutdown for many federal agencies began Oct. 1. You may wonder what this means for you. Please see below for information released by specific agencies that may affect you.

Some government agencies will remain open and functional to protect life and property. These include the armed forces, border patrol agents, air traffic controllers and federal workers who provide medical care on the job. The Postal Service, which is self-funded, will also continue to operate.

Regardless of what happens in Washington, I am working hard to make sure that everyone in our area gets the service they need. My Nashville and Washington offices will remain open to continue assisting you. If you have any questions, please contact my office.


Q: What happens when the federal government shuts down?



Q: Will mail continue to be delivered?

A: Yes. The Postal Service is not affected by a government shutdown.

Social Security

Q: I'm enrolled in Social Security. Will I get my check?

A: Yes. Social Security and Supplemental Security Income payments to beneficiaries will continue with no change in payment dates. However, during a government shutdown, the Social Security Administration will not be able to issue new or replacement Social Security cards, replace your Medicare card, or issue a proof of income letter


Q: Does Medicare still work?

A: Benefits for Medicare are exempt from the shutdown, so current participants shouldn't notice an interruption.


Q: Will VA hospitals be open?

A: Yes.


Q: Will Congress get paid?

A: Yes, the Constitution requires it. But Jim has introduced two bills that would stop Members of Congress from being paid if Congress doesn't pass a budget or America defaults on its bills.

Q: Does Congress shut down?

A: No, Congress is in session.

shut their paychecks down not our country and make them repay the money they put our country in debt out of pocket. I bet the budget would miraculously be budgeted in just a few years...

Fallen firefighter families to visit National Memorial despite shutdown.

They adapted and overcame but it's a shame that the families of our nations fallen hero's had to deal with the added stress of a very emotional event. CH Ron

Comment by Fyre Walker on October 3, 2013 at 3:22pm

I would like to see which government agency is REALLY needed and as such, the ones we can live without should be eliminated.

Comment by Janet Liebsch on October 3, 2013 at 1:50pm

Thx Alli. As fyi, methinks USDA has gone a little overboard with shutdown. If you visit you'll be greeted with below screen. I guess a website can't stay online without a paid employee constantly monitoring it (said no webmaster ever... [snort])...

just doesn't make sense anymore. Way out of control!
