The US Postal Service wants to make sure those displaced by Hurricane Ian know how they can get their mail and packages.

Save mail and change address (COA):

The Hold Mail service is intended for customers who plan to occupy their homes within 30 days. If you request a mail suspension, your mail and parcels will be held securely at your local post office for up to 30 days.

You can pick up your accumulated mail at the post office (ID required for collection) or you can request mail delivery to your residence on a date of your choice (up to 30 days). For more information, go here: https://holdmail.usps.com.

If you do not plan to occupy your home for 30 days, you can apply for a temporary change of address to permanent residence (COA).

A temporary change of address is intended for customers who plan to return to their place of residence within six months. If you do NOT plan to return to your current address, submit a permanent COA request. COA can be filed here.
