Many veterans stop receiving disability checks due to gov’t shutdown

CENTRAL FLORIDA —

More people in central Florida are worried they will start to feel the impact of the government shutdown.
Some local military personnel have received letters that say their benefit checks will stop.
Many veterans said they depend on that money to pay for basic things, such as rent and food.
