Did past Government shutdowns effect Social Security Payments?

Did past Government shutdowns effect Social Security Payments?

I am poised to collect my first Social Security retirement check at the end of February. Since the Government is now shut down I am wondering if I will get it on time.

On a more somber note 4 out of 5 of the Boys I palled around with when I was a Kid did not make it to collect Social Security and died with in the last 15 years.
Who would have thought that my Father who is coming up on his 92nd birthday would out live Kids that I grew up with.

Social Security is separately funded; the checks will go out on time.

Both sides know better than mess with them. They show up to vote.

FWIW, a woman I know who works for ATF in DC worked yesterday. Different sort of funding for her classification.

3 day weekend was all it amounted to. 17 days and counting till the next round of angst. Is this really the best we can do?

The irony of some of the biggest complainers on this forum about government handouts looking for their government handout is amusing.

Conveniently not, because those complaining about our welfare society receive one. Funny how that works

Of course rest assured, everything else is.
