Due to the shutdown, now the longest in U.S history, more than 800,000 employees in nine federal departments and other agencies are working without pay or have been furloughed without pay.

“We realize that it may be a difficult time financially for affected government employees,” said Atlantic vice president of customer care Courtney Long in a statement. “Our customer care teams will work with these customers to find a payment solution that works, as we always strive to do when our customers are in critical need.”
