We are definitely getting paid on the first! But like I said, they have 3 weeks to get together a permanent budget to avoid a shut down. I think it's possible that within the next month or two we'll see delayed pay.I really wish they'd get their act together on Capitol Hill. My daughter's very worried about whether or not she'll get paid on April 1st...she's in the reserves. It would also affect my son and his family, they're active duty, and the hubby and I wouldn't get our retirement pay.
