    How long does it takes to get this post office change of address thing activate. It says within a week, but can i get change of address after 30 days of filling this form. I want to fill in advance.

    Admiring the time and energy you put into your site and detailed information you provide. It’s nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same unwanted rehashed material. Great read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

    I will be moving from California to Washington, DC.

    The close of escrow should happen this week or next.

    After close of escrow, I will have (3) days before I move; however, I do not have a permanent address in Washington, DC.

    I will be staying in a hotel for about (2) weeks until I find an apartment & my furniture arrives.

    Can you HOLD my mail until I get a permanent address?

    Once I get my apartment in DC, I should submit a Change of Address to US Postal?

    Thank You.

    Hi, thanks for all this wonderful information. It worked very quick for me. I had submitted my USPS change of address request through your online form on 12 July and today itself I received my first mail at my new address. I was really worried when I thought of change of address but this site was really helpful. Please keep the good work. I would suggest adding Google+ button so that I can suggest this site to my friends also. That’s all I can do for you. This was first time I moved and had to change my address, all went so smooth. I will definitely suggest it to my friends for any of their change of address needs.
    My all good wishes to you.

    Hey there, This page is rather educational and fun to read. I am a large follower from the points blogged about. I also love reading the comments, but it appears as a whole lot of readers have to stay on topic to try and add anything to the original topic. I would also encourage all of you to bookmark this article for your most employed service to support get the term out. Thanks

    Hello! This post could not be written any better!

    Reading through this post reminds me of my old room mate!
    He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this post to him.

    Pretty sure he will have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!

    Sweet blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News.
    Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
    I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem
    to get there! Many thanks

    Can I simply just say what a relief to find someone who truly understands what they are talking about over the internet. You actually realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More and more people should look at this and understand this side of your story. I can’t believe you’re not more popular since you most certainly have the gift.

    How long does the change of address work? We moved in August and are wondering if mail will still be forwarded through Christmas.

    Very descriptive post, I liked that a lot. Will there be a part

  16. kimberly c says:

    I am shocked regarding the expense of this simple and convienent service. $20 to change an addres is rediculess! I moved 3 times last year and it didn’t cost me $20 per move or in total to change my addresses. How did I arrive @ moving help when I entered Furthermore, the service name is redundent. Help/assistance means the samething! The service name alone leaves me suspicious. Cost of $19.95 leaves me feeling scammed.

    How do I complete an online change the address of someone who is deceased? My uncle passed away in June 2014. I became Administrator of his Estate in February 2014. We have not sold his house yet and I must continue to receive his mail to settle the Estate, but I do not live anywhere near his house. In March I went to my local branch and filled out a change of address form to have his mail forwarded to a P.O. Box. It is nearly impossible for me to get to the P.O. Box during business hours or on Saturdays (and there is not a lot of mail), so I decided to forward to my home address before the P.O. Box expires on 8/31/15. I filled out a Change of Address form, but for identity the only billing address I could add was my own – and I don’t know how to skip the change in voter registration. Obviously my uncle cannot change his voter registration because he has been dead for over a year! Why are there no instructions on how to forward mail from someone who is deceased? I am slowly contacting the different agencies who send mail to him but it is a slow process, and I only discover who to contact by receiving the mail. Also – should I fill out 2 forms? One for his old home address, and one to forward mail from the P.O. Box that is about to expire? I cannot go to the Post Office during business hours because I cannot leave work to do this in person. (And the last time I went in person, I got 2 different people telling me 2 different things about forwarding his address. One insisted my uncle had to be there to give consent even though he is dead. Yet I was able to have his mail forwarded.) I would like to do this online. PLEASE HELP!

    • Shauna says:

      I was reading further on the site and saw the section that stated: “It is a punishable offense to fill out a fake change of address form for some one else.”. I am now very nervous because I filled out the form for my deceased uncle. I am legally the Administrator for his Estate and have rights to his mail, but I am nervous that by filling out the form online with his name, then using my name for the credit card verification, this will be seen as “fake” and punishable. I have tried calling the Post Office, but there is no answer, I have emailed, but have not received a response yet. Please assist and let me know if it is okay that I filled out a change of address for my deceased uncle and if it will go through.

      • Shauna says:

        Update – the address change went through. So I’m also going to forward the P.O. Box before it expires. I have all my Letters of Administration with raised seal and official Death Certificate for my uncle, so I’m assuming all will be okay. Thanks.

    I am just trying to correct a previous request for change of address, but am having trouble doing that. I made a mistake on the name of the retirement complex I moved to, and in fact, would like to completely remove it and just use the address and unit number, city, state, and zip code.
