Moving to a new address can be a stressful process, but changing your address doesn’t have to be. Learn steps to change your address and make sure you receive all your important mail at your new location.
The first step to changing your address is to visit the United States Postal Service (USPS) website and fill out a Change of Address form. You’ll need to provide your contact information, current address, new address, and the date you want your address to change.
It’s important to update your address with the DMV to ensure you receive any important information and avoid any issues with your driver’s license or registration.
To change the address on your license, visit the official website of your state’s DMV. Select the “Address Change” option and fill out the required information. After you submit, your confirmation will be sent via email, mail or text message.
Notify important organizations of your new address. This includes your bank, credit card companies, insurance providers, and any other organizations that send you important mail. Remember to also notify your employer and healthcare professionals.
Don’t forget to update your address on any online account you have to ensure that you receive ongoing subscription boxes and deliveries.
