Post offices to stay open during shutdown

Self-funded USPS not affected by federal stalemate

ANDERSON, Ind. — A shutdown of the federal government will not mean that mail stops being delivered, according to Kim Yates of the United States Postal Service.

Yates, who works from the Indianapolis office, said the USPS is self-funded through the sale of stamps and other postage materials.

“We don’t receive any taxpayer money,” she said.

Even if the government shuts down, she said, the postal service will operate with business as usual.
