If you don’t change your address, we’ll return your mail to sender. Make sure to do the following:
  • Change your mailing address on GET.
  • Update your mailing address with family, friends and vendors who send you paychecks, bills, magazine, packages, etc. It can take several weeks before vendors update their records, so contact them now.
