Move Update Reviews May Begin in April

The U.S. Postal Service will start reclaiming postage discounts from First-Class mailers who do not comply with its Move Update rules in April, said Angelo Wider, USPS manager of finance.


Under Move Update, which is designed to reduce undeliverable-as-addressed mail, mailers using automation or presort rates are required to update addresses every 180 days using the Address Change Service, National Change of Address, FastForward or other USPS-approved method.


The reclaimed discounts will be only for the portion of mailings not in compliance. The decision follows tests last year in several areas, including the Southeast, Pacific Coast and the New York and Washington metro areas, which revealed some mailers did not use Move Update properly.
