There is no specific requirement to change your address within a specific time according to the United States Postal Service, however, many states require you to change your address on your driver's license or state ID card within thirty days of moving. That means you should prepare to change your address at least ten days before you move since USPS says it takes up to ten days for an address change to occur once you have submitted your change request. You can also put on your form if you would like the forwarding of your mail to start on a specific date.

Does USPS Charge for Filing a Change of Address

When you want to change your address with the United States Postal Service, you have two options. You can either

  1. Visit a local post office and fill out a change of address form
  2. Fill out a change of address form online

If you fill out your change of address form online, USPS will charge you a small fee. It costs $1.05 to change your address online. This fee serves to verify your identity so USPS knows that it is you doing the change of address and not someone else. This charge can only be paid with a credit or debit card. The same fee is charged if you want to change your address over the phone.
