WASHINGTON - Tuesday marks the end of the fiscal year and if a budget compromise isn't reached, a government shutdown will cause some departments and agencies to close.

The biggest impact would be felt by federal workers in Washington, but don't be fooled, the effects will certainly be felt all across the country.

Here's a quick look at what you can expect if the shutdown happens:
  • The nations 400 national parks would be shut down.
  • You won't be able to apply for a passport. Any applications already in the works could be delayed.
  • First time home buyers would find that they can't apply for a mortgage or the process would be delayed.
For those relying on social security and medicare checks, they would go out on time. A shutdown would not affect these.

Some other services not affected include post offices and active duty military.
