Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I change my address online at USPS.com?
Filing your Change of Address at USPS.com has many benefits:
- It is the only official USPS™ online change of address service.
- You can file your change of address at your convenience (no need to go to the Post Office™ for a paper form).
- You receive an email confirmation from USPS.com that your request has been submitted.
- You can return to USPS.com to check the status of your request at any time.
- You receive special discounts and coupons to help with your move.
Once your address has been changed with the Postal Service, your mail will be forwarded to your new home within 7 to 10 days.
How does mail forwarding work?
After your change of address is accepted, mail that is addressed to your old address is forwarded to your new address. The USPS™ mail forwarding service lasts one year for First-Class Mail™ and 60 days for periodicals (magazines). Certain classes of mail do not forward unless requested by the mailer.
It's an easy step you can take to be sure that all your important mail like bank statements, checks and personal letters get forwarded to your new address promptly.
Can I edit my information if I change my mind?
The online change of address process allows you to edit some of your information if you've made an error or if your plans change. When you've completed the process, you'll receive a confirmation code at the email address you provided. You may use this code to update your information or check the status of your request at ManageMyMove.USPS.com.
