There is some good news about something you will be receiving, even if the government does shut down Friday.
Employees at the local Social Security offices say people who are on Social Security will still receive their check if that occurs.
They say they haven't gotten too many calls from concerned citizens yet, but they anticipate, if the government shuts down, those calls will come in Monday morning when no one's at the office.
They say this happened in years past and they're just currently watching and waiting like the rest of us.
They want to reiterate: people will still receive their Social Security check if there is a government shutdown.
