USPS results through August 2015

The U.S. Postal Service has published its financial results for the month of August 2015 and its year-to-date results through August 2015. They can be found here.

The Postal Service had a $75 million operating loss for the month of August, before the effects of retiree health benefits (RHB) pre-funding and workers’ compensation accounting adjustments.

As of the end of August 2015, USPS’ year-to-date operating profit was $1.1 billion before RHB pre-funding and workers’ comp accounting adjustments.

There is one more month remaining in the 2015 fiscal year, which ends on Sept. 30.

No additional monthly reports will be published before the Postal Service releases its full-year 2015 results. We expect the results for the full 2015 fiscal year (which will include the month of September 2015) will be released at the beginning of November 2015.
