If you are the only person moving, choose the Individual address change option. If you receive mail by more than one name, it’s important that you submit separate address changes for each name. For instance, if you receive mail under your maiden name or you use a nickname, each name should have it’s own address change form submitted.
If there is more than one person moving and everyone that is moving has the same last name, choose the Family address change option. If there are some members of your family that are not moving, then you should submit an Individual address change request for each mover. It’s also important to note that if some of the members of your family have different last names, you must again submit multiple Individual address changes for each person that is movin
Just to be sure, you will be asked if all individuals moving from this address share the same last name. If the answer is no, then anyone who is moving that has a different last name will be required to submit a separate Individual Change of Address.
Note: Only use a Family Change of Address if EVERYONE in your household is moving and everyone has the SAME last name. This means everyone will have their mail forwarded to the new address specified when you choose the Family change of address option.
You will also be asked if anyone with the same last name will not be moving and will remain at the old address. If the answer is yes, an Individual address change must be submitted to make sure the mail of the remaining members of the family does not get affected or interrupted. A family move will forward all mail associated with anyone that shares the last name. So it’s important not to choose a Family move if you have some members of the family with the same last name remaining at the old address.
If the ENTIRE business is moving, choose the Business Address Change option. If you are submitting an Individual or Family change of address and your old address is a business address, your change of address request will not be processed. If you are an existing or former employee, you can not have your personal mail forwarded from a business address.
