Full Answer

You need to provide a valid email address as well when filling out the change of address form. It is your responsibility to provide the correct information. You also have the option of changing your address at no charge directly in person at your local post office. After you submit the change of address, the USPS forwards your mail to your new address for a year. As of August 2015, when using the online form, you receive up to $500 in coupons, as well as the opportunity to forward your catalogs through MyMove.com.

You can also change your address online through the Social Security Administration as well as the Internal Revenue Service. The Social Security Administration allows you to change your address through your Social Security online account, but you need to contact the IRS if expecting a refund or other mail from the IRS. You should contact your State Department of Motor Vehicles if changing your address with the DMV.
