What to Expect

After you have selected and signed up with the mail forwarding service of your choice, you will receive an email from them telling you what to do next. In case you would like to get ahead of the game, here’s what to expect:

You will need to fill out the USPS Form 1583. This form is required by US Postal Service regulations. It identifies the mailbox forwarding company as an entity who is authorized to receive mail on your account. You can start having your mail forwarded right away, but please note:

Nothing can be done (no scanning, additional forwarding, etc.) until this form is filled out and signed. (see Mailbox Forwarding Form 1583 here).

This form only gives the company authorization to RECEIVE your mail. You will still need to determine if you want all of your mail forwarded, or if you just want to change your address with a few places and have that mail sent there.

If you want to forward all of your home mail, you will need to fill out the change of address request with your Postal Service provider.

However, if you are using the service as a business virtual mailing address or for correspondence from particular people – you will need to notify these people and/or companies of your new address.

And that’s all there is to it! Fill out the 1583 form; change your address, or notify people of your new address.

Now you will be able to access all your mail online through the mail forwarding service administration panel. Just check in whenever you want and see what’s come in for the day. You will no longer have to constantly worry about what’s setting in your mailbox at home. Now, someone else will take care of it for you!
