How does the Govt shutdown affect VA Appraisers ...Will work continue to come in?

In the 2013 shutdown, VA loans continued.

https://www.veteransunited.com/valoans/government-shutdown-impact-VA-home-loans/

Borrowers who are applying for an FHA or VA mortgage could run into delay if workers from those departments are sent home, and there's no one available to process the loan.

However, according to this source: https://www.navytimes.com/veterans/...-shutdown-better-than-most-other-departments/

As a result, most of the department’s 377,000-plus employees won’t be affected by a partial shutdown. VA officials said only a small number of Veterans Health Administration workers will be temporarily sent home, and none of them deal directly with patient care.

How about FHA case numbers?

Depends on what agencies are stopped first. But I think the case numbers were affected in 2013, because Obama sought to shut down the agencies with the most public faces and hurt citizens worst so they would pressure congress to act.

Don't think it will effect FHA case numbers they are computer generated.

HUD employees are being sent home after completing shutdown protocols.

However, in shutdowns past, VA remained opened, or at least partially, to maintain operations.

Same here. Hardly any VA work over the past month. In 2013 I definitely noticed a stop in orders with the shutdown. Everyone here and on the Facebook VA blog are saying the shutdown will not affect the VA appraisal requests. I disagree but hope I'm wrong.
