Question: Does the Post Office Charge for an Address Change?

questions!This week a client called to ask, "does the post office charge $39.95 to process an address change online?"

I was delighted she had taken my advice, to call with any questions that might arise.

This question was an easy one to answer: "NO!" There are a number of private companies that offer to "help" with an address change, but do so at a cost to the consumer, a cost which isn't necessary. As is often the case, when one searches online for "changing mailing address online" or something similar, paid ads which sound genuine come up first, thus the confusion.

Here's what to do: go directly to www.usps.com/umove/

I hope all my clients remember to feel free to call me with questions. I won't know the answers to everything, but I certainly will check and try my best to find out.  Sometimes two heads are better than one!
