Frequently asked questions

How Long Does Mail Forwarding Last?

caret-down

The length of mail forwarding depends on which option you choose: temporary or permanent. Temporary mail forwarding requires users to list an end date when signing up, between 15 and 364 days from the date it was requested.

Permanent mail forwarding lasts for 12 months and you will need to inform anyone who mails you letters or packages of your new address. USPS will notify you when your mail forwarding is about to expire.

How to forward mail?

How you forward mail depends on the situation, you have three options:

1. Forwarding mail to your new address:  

If you have a new address and you want to forward mail to it, you need to change it with USPS. To do that, please visit your local Post Office and bring two forms of ID with you. You can change your address permanently or temporarily. Temporary address changes range from 15 days to 1 year. If you change your address online, there will be a $1.00 fee. However, if you forgot to change your address at USPS before moving, you need to find someone who is able to forward your mail from your old location.

2. Forwarding mail to someone else address:

If you need to forward mail to someone who moved, like a family member or a friend, and you know the destination address, you can do the following steps:

  1. Using a black marker you need to cross out the existing address, then write the new address. You also need to mark the envelope “Moved or Forward” before mailing.

  2. Next, go to the Post office and fill out a PS Form 3575. In this form, you will change the address of the person that no longer leaves at your address. If you don’t know the new address of this person, you just need to write on the envelope “Moved – Return to Sender.”

3. Received mail to someone else:

In case you have received mail intended for someone else you should contact USPS so they could send someone.
