If you are moving to a new home, it is important to update your address with the United States Postal Service (USPS) so you can continue to receive your mail. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to change your home address with the USPS.

  1. Go to the USPS website: The first step in changing your address is to visit the USPS website. You can do this by going to and clicking on the "Change of Address" link under the "Quick Tools" section.
  2. Set up an account: To change your address online, you will need to set up a USPS account. If you don't already have an account, you will need to create one by clicking on the "Create an Account" button and following the prompts.
  3. Select the type of move: The next step is to select the type of move you are making. You can choose from a permanent move, a temporary move (such as a vacation), or a business move.
  4. Enter your old and new address: You will need to enter your old address and your new address in the appropriate fields. Make sure to double-check for accuracy to ensure that your mail is forwarded to the correct location.
  5. Choose a start and end date: You will need to choose a start and end date for your mail forwarding. If you are making a permanent move, you can choose an indefinite end date. If you are making a temporary or business move, you will need to choose an end date when your mail will stop being forwarded.
  6. Pay the fee: The USPS charges a fee for address changes. You can pay the fee online with a credit or debit card.
  7. Review and submit your request: After you have entered all of your information and paid the fee, you will need to review your request to make sure everything is correct. Once you are satisfied, you can submit your request.
  8. Confirm your request: After you submit your request, you will receive a confirmation email from the USPS. Make sure to save this email for your records.
  9. Notify your contacts: After you have changed your address with the USPS, you will need to notify your contacts of your new address. This includes your friends, family, and any businesses or organizations that send you mail. You can do this by sending out a batch of change of address cards or by updating your contact information online or over the phone.
