Potential Government Shutdown October 1

In anticipation of a potential government shutdown, the SSA outlined a contingency plan for how operations would occur. Importantly, a large majority of SSA functions are considered critical, so only certain functions would be impacted.


In the event of a government shutdown, the relevant halted SSA activities would be (not exhaustive):

· Benefit verifications

· Earning record corrections

· Third-party request queries

· FOIA requests

· Replacement Medicare cards

· Overpayment processing

· Quality control review

· Responding to Congressional inquiries on appeals


If the shutdown were to become lengthy, their plan could change. IBI will continue to monitor these updates.
