The website published a number of stories concerning federal workers and news that they will receive pay taken away by the furlough and a pay raise.
Retroactive pay for most federal employees who were furloughed during the 16-day government shutdown will reflect on their Oct. 25 paycheck.
The Defense Finance and Accounting Service will include back pay for civilian, retired and active-duty military personnel in the upcoming payday.
DFAS also serves the departments of Energy, Health and Human Services and Veterans Affairs.
Some employees might have to wait until after the Oct. 25 pay date because some agencies have different guidelines for dispensing checks.

The legislation that ended the shutdown has raised the wage of recently furloughed federal employees by 1 percent.
Barack Obama could implement the salary hikeat the start of next year which would represent the first across-the-board increase since 2010.
Matt Biggs, legislative and political director at the International Federation of Professional and Technical Engineers, told Federal Times the federal law mandates the president to grant the wage hike to workers paid under the general schedule.
