How Does the Government Shutdown Affect My Social Security Case?

How Does the Government Shutdown Affect my Social Security

This article does a decent job of describing how the shutdown will affect your case, but more than anything it shows that the government still isn’t sure how it will affect your case. If you’re already getting benefits, it shouldn’t affect your check. However, it could affect your case if it’s a new case that needs to be processed. In 1996, thousands of Medicare applications were temporarily postponed. It’s not clear that will happen this time, but I’m as curious as you are about how this will affect my clients and me. As your attorney, I get paid my fee directly from the government, so if there’s a delay in processing cases, I won’t get paid either.
