How to Contact the Postmaster General

Updated April 17, 2017

The United States postal system (USPS) has been in place for close to 240 years. This system is responsible for the delivery of millions of pieces of mail. The Postmaster General is in charge of the United States postal system. He governs over the postal budget, makes decisions as to changes that need to be made, meets with Congress and more. The current 2009 Postmaster General is John E. Potter.

Decide on why you want to contact the Postmaster General. If you have a complaint about your local mail or delivery service you will most likely get quicker results by calling or visiting your local post office. If you want to voice your opinion and pay a compliment or make a suggestion about the post office, then you may want to write or e-mail the Postmaster General.

Write your letter and mail it in an envelope with the correct postage to:

Jack E. Potter Postmaster General U.S. Postal Service 475 L'Enfant Plaza, SW Washington, DC 20260-0010
