Proposed USPS Postal Rate Change

The United States Postal Service (USPS) is proposing rate adjustments in accordance with Postal Regulatory Commission approvals to help address operating losses due to declines in mail volume. The planned rate change, if approved, will begin on August 29, 2021. As this may affect your FY 2021/22 budgets, we wanted to give you the opportunity to plan for your USPS postage usage.

The proposed Mailing Services price changes include:

Product Current Prices Planned Prices
Letters (1 oz.) 55 cents 58 cents
Letters additional ounce(s) 20 cents 20 cents (unchanged)
Letter (metered 1 oz.) 51 cents 53 cents
Domestic Postcards 36 cents 40 cents
