Moving to a new place is very exciting, and there is not always enough time to take care of all the formalities in advance. If you have not informed all your contacts about the change of address and you continue to receive correspondence at the old address, you need to fill out the appropriate form.
PS Form 3575 05-2008 exists so that you can inform the Post Service about your change of address. All correspondence sent to your name to the old address will be redirected to the new one.
If you want to easily and simply fill out the form, we suggest using our form-building software.
This form is convenient to use if you do not want third parties to know about your new address.
Apart from a few exceptions, the postal service has no right to disclose your data. Exceptions include:
To temporarily change the address, a period from 15 to 365 days can be selected.

Periodicals will be resending for 60 days.
Therefore, sooner or later, you will need to inform the senders of your new address.

And it should be filled on the backside.
Mark, who is moving
You need to indicate whether the mail will need to redirect mail of all residents to the address or whether it is a change of address for the business.
Specify the duration of the change
If this is a temporary change of address, then check it. Perhaps you are going on a long vacation and do not want to miss your letters. You can also redirect your mail to the hospital.
The minimum period for a temporary address change is 15 days, and the maximum is 364 days.
Also include the date of the move.
Provide your legal name or the name of the business.
Enter your old address

Sign the form

Note, if your old or new address is in Puerto Rico, you should also include an urbanization name.
Several options are possible:
1. If some people with the same last name move (and some stay), then you need to fill out a separate form for each and mark “individual” in the first paragraph.
2. If people with different surnames move (and some stay), then the actions are the same. Various forms are filled in, and “individual” is marked.
3. If all people are moving and all have the same surname, then it will be enough to fill out one form for all and indicate in the first paragraph “family.”
