This is USPS’s first increase under the guidelines of the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act. The average increase by class of mail is at or below the rate of inflation, USPS said.
Consistent with the new postal reform law, prices for mailing services will be adjusted annually each May. USPS plans to provide 90 days’ notice before the price changes take effect each year.
