Travel planning

The Postal Service is reminding employees to recommend the USPS Hold Mail service to customers who plan to travel away from home this summer.

The service allows the organization to hold customers’ mail at a postal facility for a minimum of three days up to a maximum of 30 days. After that, the customers’ regular home mail deliveries will resume.

Customers can request USPS Hold Mail online at

Customers who want mail held past 30 days should sign up for the USPS Forward Mail service.

USPS Hold Mail requests are not necessary for Post Office Box customers.

Additional information is available on the USPS Hold Mail website.
