Since a furlough is a form of “non-pay status” or LWOP, I would assume that our health insurance coverage would cease because we would not be putting anything into it while on furlough. A furlough would also affect retirement as well if you were not given back pay for the time you were at home.

As for unemployment, I work for DHS so I have a very strong feeling that if there is a shutdown I’ll be reporting to work regardless.
