This is a unique and difficult time for many people throughout the country.

On the heels of the third week of an unprecedented government shutdown, the VA Home Loan Centers has released a survival guide, entitled “Shutdown Economic Crisis Survival Manual.” The guide is comprehensive, and doesn’t just cover veterans who are impacted by the shutdown, but anyone who is employed by the federal government, or receives federal benefits.

The manual outlines all of the steps people should take to soften the economic and financial impact experienced as a result of the shutdown, including accessing unemployment benefits in their respective state, covering housing expenses, making credit card payments and dealing with other immediate financial concerns. Additionally, the manual covers information pertaining to filing taxes in the coming year, and in particular, tax breaks that may be available as the result of the government shutdown.

“This is a unique and difficult time for many people throughout the country,” said Tim Nash head counsel for VA Home Loan Centers. “They may be a federal employee experiencing a furlough, or they may receive federal benefits and they’re concerned they won’t be able to receive them if this uncertainty continues. We wanted to provide a resource for individuals who have concerns about their own financial status as the result of the shutdown, and many of the items we highlight are applicable to a broad range of people.”

The VA Home Loan Centers is recognized not only for its outstanding provision of mortgage loans to veterans and service members, but also for serving as a valuable resource to members of the military and veteran communities, in a range of capacities.

The guide to the economic shutdown is not only pertinent for the current situation many Americans are facing, but is also a great framework for dealing with anything from job loss, to an unexpected emergency situation. It provides a basis for creating economic safety nets that an array of people will find useful and informative.
