Forever stamps to jump to 55 cents, biggest increase in USPS history

Local News

(1/28/19) WASHINGTON D.C. – The price of Forever stamps is increasing by 10 percent, and will go from 50 cents to 55 cents, according to a United States Postal Service press release.

The First-Class Mail Forever stamp price took effect on Sunday, the federal agency said. The change is the biggest jump in the history of the USPS.

Although the price is increasing, old Forever stamps remain valid for mailing a letter regardless of how much the price changes.

The price change will offset a $4 billion loss the federal agency experienced in 2018.
