Why you need to change your address with USPS

During such an important event as the relocation, which consists of a million different activities – furniture transportation, disconnection of public services at the old address, buying new interior items for a new house, etc. It is no wonder that some people forget about this seemingly trifling, but very important moment, like the official change of address. Neglect of this formality can lead to serious consequences. For example, if you are in the process of naturalization and have not notified the immigration service about your changes, then you may not receive the necessary documents. Also missing a phone or a loan bill that was sent to your old address may negatively affect your credit history. It will be unpleasant even to simply not receive your favorite magazine just because you did not set the redirect on time.

If you move to a new place of residence, you must report this to a number of government agencies in the United States. The first and one of the most important is United States Postal Services (USPS). This is a best and simplest method to change your address. You will not lose your letters or bills that will come to your name if you inform your postal service about your new address and sign up for their proposed $ 1 mail forwarding. Do not postpone this matter until later – it is recommended to notify the mail within ten days. You can report a change in your address by visiting any USPS post office, or on the USPS: Moving site at https://www.us-mailing-change-of-address.com/change-of-address-3575.php.

Changing the address online is the easiest and fastest way, but make sure that at the end of the process you have removed all the check marks in the section where you are invited to subscribe to the newsletter, otherwise your mailbox will be filled up with various advertising offers, from which it will be very difficult to unsubscribe in the future.

Also, it is essential to mention that all males aged 18 to 26 are required to register with the Selective Service System (SSS). And after registration, they are obliged to inform about the change of address within 10 days from the moment of changing the address of residence. These changes must be reported until January 1 of the year, in which the man will turn 26 years old. You can report changes by changing the address online, or by filling out the address change form (SSS Form 2) at any post office, or simply by calling 1-847-688-6888.

After you change the address at the post office and subscribe to the redirection, you will need to notifyb each organization to which you have transferred your contact information and with whom you would like to keep in touch. Usually, you can update the address on the organization’s website, in your account or by phone. The list of such organizations includes banks, utility companies, mobile network operators, insurance companies, educational institutions, periodicals, as well as your employer and doctor.

To make sure that you do not miss any important letter, you can also write to new tenants at your old address, politely asking them to postpone anything that comes to your name, and give their contact information so they can contact you about it.
