How Does the Government Shutdown Affect My Disability Claim?

government shutdown social security disability claim

Many have wondered how the Government Shutdown will affect their disability claims. While the shutdown will limit the services that the Social Security Administration (SSA) will offer, the good news is they will continue to make payments as scheduled.

The SSA will remain open for the following functions:


This means the Social Security claims process is not effected in any way during a government shutdown. While the situation is subject to change due to the congressional stalemate on budget and debt negotiations, we at The Law Office of Nancy L. Cavey continue to work with the Social Security Administration on claims and do not foresee any problems.

If you are a currently receiving SSD benefits or are thinking of applying for social security disability, the shutdown will not affect that. Contact us for aid in pursuing a claim for social security disability benefits.
