Congressman Wants Door-to-Door Mail Delivery to Seniors

Share this content:
Rep. Jim Saxton, R-NJ, introduced a bill April 5 to require the U.S. Postal Service to deliver mail to the homes of senior citizens living in age-restricted developments.


The legislation would require the USPS to deliver mail directly to seniors' doorsteps. Saxton offered a similar bill last year, but it never reached the House floor.


The USPS has said delivering door-to-door takes longer and costs more than delivering to cluster boxes.


Saxton's bill directs that housing facilities intended for people 55 and older with at least 80 percent occupancy of those 55 and older to be served with door-to-door delivery. The USPS would plan its own means of implementation. Delivery would be required within six months of enactment of the law.


Senior citizens in the congressman's district came up with the idea.
