USPS Changes Effective October 1, 2021 9/30/2021

Please review this announcement from the Postal Service:

On October 1, the Postal Service will implement new service standards for First-Class Mail® (FCM) and Periodicals. These new service standards will increase delivery reliability, consistency, and efficiency for our customers and across our network. Most First-Class Mail (61 percent) and Periodicals (93 percent) will be unaffected by the new service standard changes. Standards for single-piece First-Class Mail traveling within a local area will continue to be two days.

Please download the USPS Fact Sheet on these changes that includes a delivery chart that will help you estimate the new time frames.
