Some local banks are getting prepared if there is a government shutdown.
According to officials at Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union and USAA, there are plans in the works right now to help customers who are federal employees.
Many government employees have been watching what happens to the Affordable Care Act closely, anticipating a possible government shutdown.
If that happens, some federal employees or benefit recipients might not be allowed to work or receive pay until a compromise is reached.
However, officials at Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union are letting their members know that they're prepared to help their military.
"It's important for Randolph Brooks to be proactive about this because we serve such a diverse community," said Sonya McDonald, Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union Senior VP of Planning and Market Development. "We're in San Antonio -- Military City, USA -- so we have a lot of military folks and a lot of government employees. We don't want their lives to be impacted by what's happening in Washington."
McDonald said the credit union will provide members with a one-time provisional credit if they are government employees or benefit recipients affected by the shutdown.
"For example, if you are used to getting a thousand dollars on the 15th of the month with the government potential shutdown that may not happen," said McDonald. "Randolph-Brooks will put a provisional credit in your account for that thousand dollars and that credit will drop off once your receive that paycheck."
McDonald said members will automatically see this credit in their account and that they don't have to call it in to have it done.
Members will also be notified about this account activity through secure messaging.
Officials at USAA also announced on Friday that they are prepared to help their military members if the government does shut down.
USAA announced that they are planning on providing members with a no-interest payroll advance loan, if they have direct deposit.
