Will Minnesota Disability Payment Be At Risk Due To The Washington Debt Fight?

A large part of Minnesota disability payments are paid for by the Federal government. One of the payments that may be cut or simply not paid is the Minnesota disability benefits or SSI that those who are disabled and unable to work receive. Because the Federal government provides funding that could be one of the may areas that the US Government will need to cut if a budget deal cannot be reached by August 2, 2011. The budget fight is very much like the Minnesota shutdown that occurred in July when the Governor and Legislature could not agree to a budget. So if you receive SSI or SSDI benefits paid by the Minnesota disability program and federal government keep watching the news to see if your benefits will be interrupted.
