The United States Postal Service (USPS) has made some changes to its new address policy — and it requires a few extra steps that consumers will not want to miss.
The USPS has created the new policy in order to properly verify the identity of customers.
“Today a customer that submits a ‘change of address’ request must have their identity verified,” James McKean, senior public relations representative, told FOX Business.
“There are three ways to initiate a change of address request: online, visiting a local retail office, or submitting the request by mail,” McKean also detailed.
“If the customer does not go into a retail location and present proper identification or they do not enter the activation code [they receive], their change of address is not activated.”
