To let the post office know you are going to change your address and want your mail forwarded to your new location, you have two options:
- Go to USPS.com/move to change your address online.
- This is the fastest and easiest way, and you immediately get an email confirming the change.
- There is a $1.10 charge to change your address online. You will need a credit or debit card and a valid email address. The $1.10 charge to your card is an identity verification fee to prevent fraud and make sure you’re the one making the change.
- Warning: You don’t need to pay a separate company to change your address. Scammers may charge $40 or more to do what you can do for just $1.10 using the moving section of the official USPS.com website.
- Go to your local post office and request the Mover’s Guide packet.
- Inside the packet is PS Form 3575. Fill out this change of address form and give it to a postal worker behind the counter. Or, drop it into the letter mail slot inside the post office.
- You should receive a confirmation letter at your new address in five business days.
