The managed care company said payments for healthcare services it provides to military families would be delayed due to the U.S. government shutdown.

** HUMANA INC
The managed care company said the government shutdown would delay payments related to its military health services contract and that it could be liable for up to $175 million worth of claims if the payments do not come through.
Humana provides administrative services to the government for healthcare, with the federal government covering the cost of the benefits and associated risk.
** LOCKHEED MARTIN CORP
The weapons maker said it would furlough about 2,400 of its workers because the government facilities where they work are closed due to the shutdown or the company had received a stop-work order on their program. The number of employees was expected to increase every week if the shutdown continued, the company said on Oct. 4.
** UNITED TECHNOLOGIES CORP
The diversified manufacturer canceled plans to temporarily lay off workers in its aerospace businesses as government quality inspectors return in the wake of the Pentagon's decision to recall most its own furloughed civilian workers.
The company, which makes Sikorsky helicopters and other items for the military, said on Oct. 2 that it could furlough as many as 4,000 workers in its aerospace businesses if the shutdown continued through the following week and possibly nearly 5,000 if the shutdown continued into November.
