2021 United States Postal Service Postal Price Changes

2021 USPS Postal Price Changes


The most important piece of news from the USPS is that there will be no increase in the price of the Forever Stamp

The USPS filed notice with the PRC on Friday (October 9) about price changes that are scheduled to take effect Jan. 24, 2021.

The proposed prices increase  prices by 1.8 percent for First-Class Mail and 1.5 percent for other categories.

Mailing Services price increases such as First-Class Mail are based on the Consumer Price Index. Other prices are adjusted according to market conditions. 


The major changes are listed below and a complete complete list of changes can be found on the PRC site under the Daily Listings section at prc.gov/dockets/daily.
