The Postal Regulatory Commission approves the 2021 promotions, price increase and the Seamless Acceptance Incentive as proposed on October 9th, 2020. The price increase becomes effective on January 24th, 2021.

“The Commission concludes that the planned price adjustments do not violate the price cap limitations specified by 39 U.S.C. § 3622(d) and are consistent with, or justified by an exception to, the workshare discount limitations appearing in 39 U.S.C. § 3622(e).” – from the PRC filing.

While there are rate changes both below and above within individual cells, the below table displays the average increase across the Class of the Mail, and the total unused price authority to be banked.

The Commission finds that the Postal Service’s planned price adjustments relating to USPS First-Class Mail, Marketing Mail, Periodicals, Package Services, and Special Services as identified in the United States Postal Service Notice of Market-Dominant Price Change, filed October 9, 2020, are consistent with applicable law and may take effect as planned.
