How will this shut down affect those of us on the periodic rolls?

I received payment last Friday. I'm not sure I'll receive my 1032 this January however. I'm guessing the CE's are not at work and will come back with an attitude that the injuries will receive pay and the workers not.... I would be.

Essential functions will be performed by employees.

The essential functions include processing and payment of compensation. If you're on the periodic roll, you should not see any interruption in payment.

DOL / OWCP was fully funded for fiscal 2019 in September. Not subject to partial shutdown and operating normally.
