The United States Postal Service (USPS) allows their customers to view, update, and cancel their Change of Address requests online regardless of whether it was submitted at a Post Office™ or through the Internet. This can be done by providing the new zip code and a confirmation code that can be found through the confirmation email or the printed change of address confirmation. This online service is not limited to Change of Address orders. It can also be used for changing the mail forwarding start date and end date, changing the phone number for the listed address, changing a temporary move status to a permanent one, and adding an email address for reminders and mail forwarding notices. However, the account may not be used to change the account holder’s name and certain elements of the address. To change these, the previous order must be cancelled, and a new one must be filed.
