Premium Forwarding Service Is Here to Stay

 

The Postal Service announced today that Premium Forwarding Service (PFS) now is a permanent offering. It was first tested as an experimental product in August 2005. The high customer interest and success of the service were cited as reasons for the announcement.

 

With PFS, all mail is forwarded, including magazines and catalogs. Mail is reshipped once a week to a customerís temporary location for a fee. Expedited services mail, such as Express Mail and Priority Mail, as well as Registered Mail, are forwarded separately at no extra charge.  

 

Customers can enroll at the Post Office serving their permanent address (a government issued photo ID and proof of permanent address are required). There is a one-time application fee of $10, and the weekly forwarding fee is $11.95.

 

Temporary Change-of-Address and Hold Mail services remain available at no charge.
