As our federal government faces a funds crisis, many of its offices are preparing for a shut down. But will this affect the Postal Service?

No.

The United States Postal Service is a self-funding organization that will continue to operate even if tomorrow brings bad news for other government services.

We provide a service for the citizens of this great country that many elderly, handicapped, and shut ins, depend on for necessities. So, they should not worry as the deficit forces other federal offices to close temporarily.

This may not be the information some have offered on their talk shows. It is a common mistake to lump the Postal Service in with other federal organizations. But it is quite unique, as it generates its own operating revenue.

The Postal Service delivers during ice, snow, hurricanes – and if it comes – government shut downs.
