Hey! I'm Carter, I'm a CPA and I can help you with this.

If the government shuts down, VA and Social Security benefits will still get paid. It is part of the government that needs to remain operational even in a shutdown under law.

Hope that helps. If you need anything else, let me know. If not, please leave a rating. Thanks!
