Many users wonder what the United States Postal Service (USPS) 1583 form is and why it needs to be notarized.
- The U.S. Postal Service requires all Commercial Mail Receiving Agencies (CMRA), like Earth Class Mail, to collect a notarized USPS 1583 form from every customer that opens up an account with us. This form allows mail to be opened, scanned, or shipped after we’ve received it at one of our addresses.
- It ensures that you, and only authorized parties, are able to access mail that is addressed to you.
- The 1583 Form authorizes us to accept mail in your name. It does not change your address with the USPS or tell us where to forward your mail.
- Due to USPS regulations, you need to have the form notarized before sending it to us. The notary's seal proves that you are the person who is authorizing Earth Class Mail to receive mail in your name or your company's name.
Your personal information will never be public, used on your account, or even impact your mailing services. The information requested on this form is strictly used to complete the USPS form 1583.
To get mail directed to your Earth Class Mail address, you can notify individual senders of your new address or file a Change of Address with the U.S. Postal Service.
