A new report by the Inspector General outlines a plan to have the mailman stop in to help the elderly, by assessing their health and even setting up their new TV.
The IG wrote, “The postal service could coordinate and collaborate with wellness organizations to offer new and far-reaching services to older Americans nationwide.”
The ideas included delivering groceries and medications to senior citizens.
The IG claims just delivering groceries to seniors could make more than $100 million a year in profit.
But even the post office management is skeptical about that.
In a letter, a top postal official said those calculations were “unsound.”
