Marine Federal Credit Union and Navy Federal Credit Union will ADVANCE your April 15 paycheck if it is direct deposited from DFAS, and will simply take it back out of your account when you get paid from the government. Other financial institutions are giving 0% loans for 30 days to help cover the lost income.

USAA is allowing you to contact them to defer payments if you are affected, as well (if you have loans or credit cards)...

Of course, this is all if the govt shuts down at midnight...

  • I think the law makers should go over sea's and STAND IN FRONT of our troops for not being paid!! Since they arnt standing behind them, they SHOULD stand in front of them.

  • They came to an agreement, so everyone will be paid :)

    I don't know what others would have done if they didn't go through MFCU or NFCU, but those banks were going to pay if the government shutdown.
