U.S. Postal Service Delays Mail Delivery, What UWCU Members Need to Know
A breakdown of the changes at the U.S. Postal Service, and what they mean for UWCU members.
In October, the U.S. Postal Service initiated systemwide service changes that will delay the standard delivery of first-class mail for the foreseeable future.
Prior to the changes, USPS said it would take no longer than three days for a piece of first-class mail to be delivered, no matter where in the country it was being sent. Since the changes were implemented, that delivery period has changed to anywhere between two and five days.
The changes are a part of a 10-year plan to improve the financial situation of the Postal Service.
Members should be aware that these changes could potentially impact how they conduct business through the mail. These changes could affect how quickly you receive new credit or debit cards, or perhaps more importantly how quickly payments are delivered.
However, UW Credit Union provides technology that could help you avoid late payments and other inconveniences caused by mail delivery slowdowns.
UW Credit Union offers Web Branch online banking and a best-in-class Mobile App with a full suite of functions. Users can make payments on loans and bills, make transfers, view account balances and other details, deposit checks and much more.
Online banking via Web Branch or Mobile App is available 24/7, and you can schedule payments for delivery as early as the same day. In addition, you can set up auto-pay to make certain payments automatically and ensure on-time delivery.
