Here is a link for any veteran, dependent, survivor or federal employee affected by the shutdown.

Quote:
Even on the best of days, we at VA know that providing for yourself and your family–and having financial stability and security–are some of the most important things in life. We recognize that many of our fellow Veterans who are also government employees impacted by the partial Federal government shutdown are experiencing significant personal and financial stress right now. We share your concerns, and I want to personally say that VA is not only still open for business, but we are actively working to provide you with much needed support and relief.

A list of numbers and websites is in the link below:

Compensation and Pension: VA continues to pay disability compensation and pension benefits to 5.5 million disabled Veterans, dependents and survivors.

Education Benefits: We know that January and February are the peak times for spring semester enrollment. Right now, VA has over 1,100 employees processing GI Bill® benefits for beneficiaries. VA’s Education Service is working overtime during this critical enrollment period so that GI Bill® payments are issued correctly and on time. Anyone facing a financial hardship due to the furlough or a delayed GI Bill® payment can contact the Education Call Center at 1-888-GIBILL-1 for assistance between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. Central Standard Time, Monday through Friday.

Home Loans: VA has encouraged loan servicers to be flexible in dealing with borrowers who have lost income due to the shutdown. In addition to providing assistance through loan modifications or other loss mitigation options, VA loan servicers can waive late fees and suspend negative credit-bureau reporting. VA can still guaranty loans if a Veteran borrower has been furloughed or otherwise negatively impacted by the partial shutdown. Veterans who have questions about their VA home loan or Specially Adapted Housing benefits can contact VA staff toll free at 877-827-3702.

Having Trouble Making Mortgage Payments on a VA-Backed Loan?

If you fall far behind on your mortgage payments, your mortgage servicer (the company that handles collecting the money for your lender) can take your house to cover the money owed. This process is called foreclosure. Find out how we can help you avoid foreclosure and keep your house.
