Provide Basic Banking Services through the Post Office
In other countries, you can get a lot done at the Post Office aside from mail. We should follow suit here in the U.S.—it would reduce costs for consumers, make Post Offices more vital, and provide financial services in rural areas.
Problems to be Solved
- Millions of Americans do not have access to basic, affordable financial services
- Post offices are community hubs that could use new activities and revenues
As President, I will…
- Enable the U.S. Postal Service to offer basic financial services at low rates in communities around the country.
- Encourage post offices to stay open until 8 pm on Tuesdays to accommodate customers.
