SEC Operational Status

In the event of a federal government shutdown, the SEC will proceed in accordance with the agency’s plan for operating during a shutdown. As that plan contemplates, we are currently making preparations for a potential shutdown with a focus on the market integrity and investor protection components of our mission. Should a shutdown occur and continue beyond Wednesday, Dec. 26, starting Thursday, Dec. 27 the agency will have a very limited number of staff members available.  The SEC will be able to respond to emergency situations involving market integrity and investor protection, including law enforcement. In addition, certain Commission systems, including EDGAR, will be operating. Additional information is available from the Division of Corporation Finance and the Division of Investment Management.
