Change Of Address And United States Postal Service

Those found guilty of providing incorrect and erroneous data could be penalized with a fine or jail term or both. The rules are very strict because any change recorded will be effected simultaneously in all related areas. It is not just a simple message to the office of the Postal Service requesting for all letters to be forwarded to the new address. This rule is meant to be rigorously followed in the U.S. and there is nothing discretionary about it. It is a mandatory procedure like voting for the candidate in the election.

A citizen has two choices – either he could correspond directly with the United States Postal Service, or he could utilize the services of the appropriate agencies to redirect the instruction and request of change of address to the Postal Service.

The change in address is effected by doing the following:

1. You should inform by giving the details in the format below:

PART A – Details of Old address

a) Name of the individual / company / firm – first name, middle name, last name

b) Previous address

c) Telephone No. Land line / Mobile / Fax No.

d) E mail address : communication after effecting change of address will be sent to this E Mail ID.

e) Date of birth of individual / Date of commencement of stay in the previous address.

f) Type of move to new place: Temporary / Permanent

If temporary, the duration of stay in new place and probable date of shifting to old place.

g) No. of persons moving With family or singly

h) In case of company / firm The entire office will be shifted

PART B – Details of new address

a) Purpose of shifting

b) Street,

c) Door No.

d) Apartment / Suit

e) City

f) State

g) Zip Code

h) Telephone No. LL / Mobile

i) E mail ID If different from the old one

j) No.of persons staying in new place

A statement is required from the individual or company guaranteeing that he has only provided factually correct data in the form and that he/they would not hold anyone else other than themselves responsible if this communication results in some kind of judicial action. The communication with the above details can be sent by secured mail say registered or courier with acknowledgment.

There are many private outfits on the internet who offer the services of helping an individual or a firm to have their address change intimated to the Postal Service office. These service providers are officially certified to carry out the task of sending the appropriate communication to the US postal authorities. You need to pay a token service charge to them for availing of this service. In view of the trust and want of time under busy schedule of life in the US, the citizens and residents are availing of this service.
