About USPS Change Address in Washington DC

If you are moving to a new address, it is very important to inform the USPS to update your data, to do it, you can use two different ways:

  • Online: Sign up at the USPS website and change your home address to the new one. Please always keep in mind that this will have a cost of $1.05 to prevent any identification fraud; this also can help to confirm your identity by your debit/credit card and your email address. After completing this process, you will see your home address changed in the time period of 4 to 5 days. To avoid scammers, always use the official website as there are people trying to falsify the information and charging up to $40.

  • In person: If you prefer a more conventional way to proceed, you can visit one of the Post Offices in Washington DC and fill up the PS Form 3575, once you complete it, you can leave it to the postal officer or just drop it at the mailbox allocated inside the office. This process will also take about 4 to 5 days and after it is successfully completed, a confirmation letter will arrive at your home.

If you need to change again, erase or stop your petition for a certain time, you can do it as many times you need, all you need to do is to repeat the steps mentioned before and keep your confirmation number which will be requested to speed up the process.

There are also other entities that should be notified of any home address changing, like for example: The Social Security Administration (SSA), the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), and the State Election Offices, among others.
