Get Shutdown Updates Sent Right to Your Phone

Federal websites could go dark if the government shuts down, but that doesn’t mean you have to stay in the dark yourself.

The prospect of a government shutdown raises a lot of questions for federal employees, contractors and citizens. Who is expected to report for work? Do you have to turn off your government-issued cellphone? Which agencies have contingency plans in place? Will you get paid and when? What will happen to VA claims waiting to be processed? Can you still contribute to your TSP plan if you’re deemed a non-essential employee?

We’ll have stories on these topics and more. Government Executive Media Group, which includes, and, will continue to bring you the information you need to stay abreast of developments in Washington and elsewhere that affect federal operations.
