What is "government shutdown".

which is going to happen in the US

The house Republicans are refusing to pass a budget, so since there's no budget, there's no approved money for federal programs, so things get shut down.

All government mandatory programs (social security, ssi, miltary pensions) will still be paid It's the people that work in these various departments,will be furloughed.So as a result any new applications for these programs,will be delayed until a budget is passed.
