Govt Sequester effecting SS checks

I saw on GMA this a.m. that the sequestering issue and the increases that are to take affect in a few days will cause disability checks not to be distributed. Is this true?

Consistent With Past Practice, Sequester Would Be Divided Equally Between Defense and Non-Defense Programs and Exempt Social Security, Medicaid, and Low-Income Programs. (Sequestration) would exempt Social Security, Medicaid, unemployment insurance, programs for low-income families, and civilian and military retirement. Likewise, any cuts to Medicare would be capped and limited to the provider side.
