Changing a Mailing Address

Changing your mailing address is one of the most important things you can do when moving. If you don’t, you’re gearing yourself for a real bad time, because you’ll end up missing:

  • Checks
  • Magazines
  • Notices (important ones, like tickets)
  • Bills
  • DMV documents
  • Cards from Mom

And missing those things, plus whatever else you depend on getting in the mail, can lead to all sorts of bad, most notably in the form of late fees and fines.

So, how do you change your mailing addressWell, it’s really easy, actually. Either walk into your nearest post office or head to and simply change your address with them. It’ll give you a year grace period, during which all of your mail will be forwarded to your new address.

In the meantime, make sure to change your address with everyone else. Here’s a list of places to change your address with.
