HOW TO APPLY FOR A PO BOX

Many people have discovered that Post Office Boxservice is a safe, convenient way to receive their mail. Learn all about PO Boxservice on the first two pages of this form. Then, decide whether to apply online or at a Post Office.

SELECT A PO BOX SIZE

Across the U.S., Postal ServicePO Boxes are available in five sizes. However, not all Post Office locations have every size. Be sure to select the right size for your mail volume and schedule.

Our smallest box (Size 1) fits 10–15 letter-sized envelopes or up to two rolled magazines. Start with a Size 2 box if you receive more than 15 mailpieces a week. Size 3, 4, or 5 is recommended if you receive magazines and catalogs.

Size 2:

Size 3:

3" X 5.5"

5" X 5.5"

11" X 5.5"

Size 4:

Size 5:

11" X 11"

22.5" X 12"

It’s easy to find a box that’s right for you. Find an available PO Box by going to www.usps.com/poboxes.

If you need more room than our largest box provides, ask at your local Post Office about Business Mail Pickup (Caller) Service.

FEES

To find a PO Box in your area and get fee information, visit www.usps.com/poboxes. You may pay your initial PO Box fees online or at the Post Office where the PO Box is located.

ID REQUIRED

Whether you apply online or at a Post Office, two valid forms of identification (one photo and one non-photo) are required when you obtain your keys or combination at the Post Office where your box is located. You must present the IDs at a Post Office. One item must contain a photograph and one must be traceable to the bearer (prove your physical address). Both must be current.

RENEWAL PAYMENTS

Renewal payments are due the last day of the month your service period ends. If your payment is late, you will not be able to access the mail in your box. After 10 days of nonpayment, we remove the mail, treat it as undeliverable, and close your box. You may also incur a late payment fee. Note that closed PO Boxes are available for new customers immediately, so late payment can lead to loss of your PO Box address.

Optional Automatic Renewal Payment — Terms and Agreement (Required for 3-month payment option)

By initialing below and establishing automatic renewal payments at a Post Office, I hereby authorize the U.S. Postal Service® (USPS®) to charge my credit card for the amount of my designated box size per USPS pricing on the scheduled interval I have selected (i.e., 3, 6, or 12 months). This charge could appear on my credit card statement as early as the 15th of the month prior to the due date. If I provided my email address, I understand that I will receive email notification at least 10 days prior to the actual credit card charge. I will also receive a payment due notice in my PO Box before the payment due date. I understand that I may cancel the automatic payment option any time after the initial application/payment process is complete during the business hours at the Post Office where my box is located. If I do not cancel by the 14th of the month prior to the next payment due date, I understand that the payment will be charged to my credit card. I understand that if the payment cannot be transacted due to incorrect or obsolete payment information or the transaction would exceed the credit limit of the account, or the bank or credit card company rejects/returns the payment request, my PO Box may be closed and any mail received after closure would be returned to the sender. If my PO Box is closed for nonpayment, I understand that I could be charged a late payment fee to reactivate my PO Box service. If there are any changes to my credit card number, billing address, or expiration date, I agree to notify the Post Office where my box is located of these changes. I understand that this agreement will remain in effect until I or USPS terminates the PO Box service. The USPS may receive updated credit card account information from the institution that issued the card identified for payment. If I decide to close my PO Box, I must visit the Post Office where my box is located during business hours. (See the PO Box refund policy for information on refunds.) The USPS may terminate my participation under this automatic payment agreement in the event I provide incorrect, false, or fraudulent account information or if I have any returned payment items.
