How Do I Change My Mailing Address With USPS?

If you are relocating or changing your residence temporarily, it is important to change your mailing address to keep you posted after the move. You can change your mailing address completely or rent a box at your local post office.

To alert the post office of your relocation and initiate your USPS change of address process, you have two options: online and in person.

Change Your Address Online

Changing your mailing address online is the fastest and easiest alternative. Simply:

You will need a credit or debit card to pay the $1.10 identity verification fee. The identity verification fee prevents fraud and ensures that only the address owner can change it.

Request the Mover's Guide Packet in Person

If you cannot change your mailing address online, you can walk into the nearest USPS office and request a mover's guide packet. The mover's guide packet comes with a PS Form 3575, which you should fill out and give back to the attendant behind the counter.

Alternatively, you can drop the filled-in form into the letter mail slot inside the post office. USPS will mail you a confirmatory letter within five business days.

If you are only changing your address temporarily, do not apply for a new mailing address. Instead, ask for Hold Mail Services. Temporary mailing address, or hold mail services are not available in all post offices. Simply apply online as if you're changing the address permanently, but remember to check the temporary address box for convenience.

If your new USPS address is not working, or you need to reverse the changes, retrace your confirmation number from the letter or email you received and make a complaint through the following channels:
