According to a recent report on FOX Business, the U.S. Postal Service has initiated a new process for people who are moving and submitting a change of address for mail forwarding. The new process introduces a more secure way to verify the customers’ identity by confirming their address change via a QR code sent to their email. Then, you must then take your ID or driver’s license with that QR code to the post office in-person.
“Today a customer that submits a ‘change of address’ request must have their identity verified…There are three ways to initiate a change of address request: online, visiting a local retail office, or submitting the request by mail,” James McKean, senior public relations representative, told FOX Business.
