  • You can update your address quickly online using social networks, or email everyone in your contact list.
  • Most magazine subscriptions have a change of address card enclosed with each issue; so do book clubs. For uninterrupted delivery, also notify any newspapers to which you subscribe.

  • Educational institutions and/or childcare facilities will need a correct address on file for important mailings.
  • Update your address with your place of worship, especially if you subscribe to a newsletter or other publication.
  • Avoid hassles next time you visit the pharmacy by updating your address promptly so it matches your drivers license.
  • Your bank or credit union will need to be notified as well as your stock broker or financial manager. Remember your safe deposit box if you have one.
  • You will need to legally change your address to ensure coverage at your new home.
  • Your CPA or whoever does your taxes will need a current address on file for you so your preparation won't be delayed.
  • Fill out the correct change of address form at the post office or online, and switch your PO Box as well if needed.
  • Change your address with the DMV — you can get a ticket for failing to have a correct address on your license.
  • If you receive benefits, inform the appropriate agency of your change of address as soon as possible.
  • You'll need a current address on file for your taxes to be filed and refunds issued, as well as to receive important notices from the Department of Revenue.
  • If you stay in the same city, usually transfer is easy. If you move further, they may return your deposit by mail upon disconnection of services.
  • Again, if you move to an area serviced by another company, you will need to arrange for service to shut off and your deposit mailed to you.
  • Arrange to have service shut off, and propane tanks disposed of if needed; any deposit can be sent to you by mail.
  • Many companies will move your service for you on receipt of your new address. Otherwise, cancel service and find a new provider in your new locale.
  • Depending on your location, you may be able to transfer service or may be forced to choose a new provider.
  • This is usually handled either by the city or a local company. Find out what is expected at your new home and arrange service if needed.
  • Especially if you are involved in a court case, your lawyer will need your current mailing address. Notify the courts as well if needed.
  • All your doctors (pediatrician, family physicians, specialists) will need your new contact information. Ask for a referral to a new doctor if you are moving far.
  • Your dentist and orthodontist should have your address updated in your records so they can mail you reminder cards. Ask for a referral if needed.
  • If you receive medication or medical supplies (or anything else) by mail on a regular basis, change your address promptly so you don't miss a shipment.
  • You can ask for a referral to a vet near your new home, and also obtain your pets' records. Make sure all tags are up to date, and notify shippers if you get meds for them by mail.
  • Any institution which is currently financing a loan for you will need your new address. So will a mortgage holder or car lot.
  • These must have a current address on file and you will need to be careful not to miss any payments.
  • If you are staying in the area, give them your new address. If not, shop for a new provider.
  • Give them your new address if you will still be close enough for them to provide services. If not, find a new one.
  • Find out if your current provider can come to your new home, or seek a new provider as soon as possible for a smooth transition.
