Will post office box rentals increase?

Starting in August, the U.S. Postal Service will no longer deliver regular mail to street addresses on Saturdays. Mail will be delivered Monday through Friday.

The following services will NOT change:
• Packages will still be delivered on Saturdays.
• Mail will still be delivered to PO Boxes on Saturdays.
• Post Office locations currently open on Saturdays will remain open on Saturdays.

Discontinuing Saturday delivery is expected to save the Postal Service $2 billion annually.

The Postal Service is an independent government agency and does not receive tax money to support its operations. It relies on the sale of postage, products, and services to fund its operations.

If you would like more information about the new mail delivery schedule, you can send questions and comments to the U.S. Postal Service.
