Mail Forwarding

By  | 

The Postal Service is offering a new, premium mail forwarding service.

Beginning in August, people who are away from their usual address for at least two weeks, but no more than a year, can have their mail boxed and sent to them once a week using the priority service.

It will cost ten dollars to enroll, and ten dollars for each weekly shipment.

The Postal Service says the new service won't replace traditional forwarding or change-of-address procedures.

Postal officials think the service could be valuable for traveling business executives, military personnel, college students, summer renters, and "snow birds" who spend their winters in warm locations.
