Keep your mail safe while on vacation with Hold Mail Service

Next gen mailbox

Going somewhere for vacation this summer? Don’t forget to put your mail on hold while you’re gone.

Hold Mail Service will keep your mail safely at your local Post Office until you return. You can schedule the service up to 30 days in advance, or by 2 a.m. CST on the start date. Mail can be held at your Post Office for any timeframe between 3 and 30 consecutive days. On the end date, your carrier will deliver your held mail.

Each address can have one Hold Mail Service scheduled at a time. All mail will be held, rather than an individual’s mail. For more information on Hold Mail Service, click here.

If you’ll be away from home longer than 30 days, there’s another option to make sure you continue to receive your mail on a regular basis. Premium Forwarding Service will hold mail, package it, and ship it to you each week for a weekly fee. The service can be used from 2 weeks up to 1 year.
