Personal Mail : Postal Information

Personal mail (Hold, Forward, and PCS) : Postal Information

Hold

If you are going on Leave or TAD for more than 5 consecutive days, you are required to notify the Post Office and leave specific written mail disposition instructions on a DD Form 2258 prior to your departure. During this temporary absence, you can authorize eligible personnel to come by and pick up your mail (although this is not a requirement). For your protection, only you or your command-sponsored spouse may provide us with mail disposition instructions and it MUST be done in person.

Forward

If you are going on Leave or TAD for over 30 days your mail can be forwarded to your Leave or TAD address (domestic address only). You are required to notify the Post Office and leave specific written mail disposition instructions on a DD Form 2258 prior to your departure. A complete forwarding address is required.

PCS

Prior to departing you should send out written change of address notifications to all your personal correspondents including all banks, magazine publishers, and creditors. Additionally, you are required to check out with the Post Office, so that your mail may be forwarded to you after your departure. Be sure to designate the effective forwarding date on your change of address request.

Please note that Pre-sort Standard (Bulk-Rate), Standard Mail and non-profit organization and mailings (most catalogs, circulars, and similar items) will not normally be forwarded to your new address; therefore, if you desire to continue to receive these mailings after you PCS, you must file an address change notification with each of these companies individually.

Important note:

Remember to always make your address change notifications in writing and notify all correspondents of the importance of using the proper address content and format (including a 9-digit ZIP Code) on all your mail.
