When should I submit my change of address form? [Video]
Changing your address is an important, but sometimes overlooked part of a successful move. When's the right time to let the USPS know about the change?
The best approach is to notify anyone who sends you important mail, like your bank or employer, about two weeks ahead of time. Then file your change of address a few days before the move.
The process is about as easy as possible now that USPS offers an online change of address form. For a $1.05 fee you can skip the trip to the post office and make the change in minutes.
