Here We Go Again…a Government Shutdown is in the News. What about Social Security?
ALERT: Last evening, the House approved a continuing resolution deferring the fight on appropriation measures until early 2024. We’ll revisit the contents of this post as the next deadline gets closer.
It’s an interesting quandary for the newly-elected Speaker of the House, but one that he surely anticipated. We’ll know by this Friday whether this will happen but, in the meantime, the concerns over continuity in the payment of Social Security benefits are back in the minds of many beneficiaries. As explained in a post by research analyst Maite Knorr-Evans on en.as.com, the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) indicates that payments will continue to be a priority, although some service offerings would likely be curtailed.
