Change of Address

One of the necessities typically forgotten when moving locations is notifying the post office of your new address. Even if the move is temporary or permanent, you should notify the US Postal Service of your address change. This is an important task to complete because important information and documents such as bills, jury duty notice, checks, W-2’s, and more-- are sent to the address USPS has on file for you. It could take 7 to 10 postal business days for mail to begin arriving to your new address, so make sure you plan ahead!
