New postage statements available

Apr 1, 2011

New postage statements associated with the April 17, 2011, price change are available on The ‘Postage Statements’ link can be found under the ‘Related Links’ section at the bottom of the page.

As of April 17, all postage statement facsimiles dated prior to January 2011 are obsolete.

Postage statement facsimiles dated January 2011 and April 2011 may be used to pay the postage prices effective on April 17, 2011.  If the January 2011 statement is used, it must reflect the April 17 prices.

For new products implemented April 17—or products subject to any new postage statement fields effective April 17—only the April 2011 postage statement can be used.

Once the date has been determined to make the use of April 2011 postage statements mandatory for all mailings, the mailing community will be advised.
