All active duty military remain on the job. They will receive paychecks Oct. 1. But if a shutdown lasts until Oct. 7, that could affect their next paychecks. Those paychecks could be delayed until after a shutdown.
Half of civilian workers for the military will be furloughed as soon as a shutdown goes into place. Those remaining on the job would be paid retroactively after the shutdown ends. Those furloughed would receive retroactive pay only if Congress votes to pay them after the fact.
