Standard Forward 邮件 & Change of Address

美国邮政总局 is taking steps to increase security, combat identity theft, and further protect our customers' information. When you submit a change of address request online, you need to take additional steps to verify your identity:

  1. Opt in online to receive a verification code or link on your mobile phone OR go to a Post Office location with an acceptable photo ID to complete the identity verification process in person.
  2. Pay the $1.10 identity verification fee.

After your change of address request is approved, you'll get confirmation as well as instant access to valuable coupons provided by third-party retailers in your area. Your change of address request lasts for 12 months, but you can pay to extend it for 6, 12, or 18 more months.
