Postal Banking?
" if the postal service offered basic banking services-nothing fancy, just basic bill paying, check cashing and small dollar loans then it could provide affordable financial services for underserved families and at the same time, shore up its own financial footing"(The Huffinton Post)
Sen. (D-Mass) Elizabeth Warren
Sen. (I-Vt) Bernie Sanders
Co-sponsor of Postal Modernization Bill
Intent of this policy is to provide non bank financial services to the unbanked and underserved, while increasing postal revenues.
How can it be done?
USPS Board of Governors
Direct policy(Expenditures, practices,planning)
9 member panel (five Vacancies)
President Obama
5 members
Congressional Approval
Bank deserts 6/10 (low income areas)
Currently provides money orders/transfers

Questions

How was the postal service retiree healthcare funded prior to mandate?
FEHBP
pay as you go method
OPM determined cost(premiums)
2005 retiree healthcare cost $ 1.5 billion
2006 retiree healthcare cost $1.6 billion
2007 retiree healthcare cost $ 10 billion
1.7b (premium) 2.9b(PSRHBF escrow acct) 5.4b(schedule payment)


Do you think that other organizations that offer unbanked citizens credit and high rates will oppose this policy?
According to Ken Clayton, Chief council of the American Bankers Association(lobby)," This entity could be perceived by many as a government-endorsed and preferred provider of financial products...the impact on banks already serving these communities would be substantial"(Washington Post)
Results of policy

Since this policy answer is a recommendation by the USPSOIG, the results have yet to be seen.In addition based on my research and the facts:
Omnipresent footprint
Past history of offering banking services
Money orders/transfers
Trusted
= Solvency for USPS
