I personally use FMCA's mail forwarding. It is seamless, reasonable and one couldn't ask for better service. They respond to your needs instantly.

Butch,
Normally your address is your legal domicile. You don't mention the state where your located or if you are planning to change your residency. Do you want to use the forwarding service on a temporary or permanent basis?

Went to the Post Office today with this question. We are putting in a change of address and sending our mail to our daughter's while we are gone for 4 months. After returning we will cancel the change of address. Post Office said the change of address is good for one year, and this was a good way to handle the problem. Since we pay bills on-line this seems to be an easy way to go since the Post Office will only hold mail for one month.

You can still retain your legal address but use a mail forwarding service with all your mail going to that address. in My case I have them forward my mail once a week to whatever address that i furnish them via internet. That may be changed weekly or may be to the same place for some time. Your daughter can send your mail to you as directed by priority mail which cost aprx $5 each time and it will be recieved in 3-5 days. normally about 3 days.

Be careful doing it that way. The Post Office will send address change notifications back to magazines and some other senders, and you'll find your address changed in their systems even if you wanted it to be temporary.

The USPS has a mail forwarding service, Premium Forwarding Service, USPS - Premium Forwarding Service.

It's a bit pricey, $15 to enroll & $13.95/week to forward mail, but it has the advantage of not needing to change your permanent address.

I've been using FMCA's mail forwarding service for over a year and have been very satisfied with their service. The disadvantage in your case is that you do need to change your address with everyone that sends you mail, not a convenient thing for a few months time.
