Beginning November 23rd, 2008 Move Update has been required by the United States Postal Service® for Standard Mail® in addition to First-Class Mail® every 95 days in order to receive a discounted postal rate as opposed to 185 days, the current requirements. This is in an effort to reduce the huge amount of UAA (Undeliverable as addressed) mail that gets processed.
Beginning January 7, 2010 the new Move Update noncompliance charge will be 7 (seven) cents per piece for mailings that do not comply with the Move Update standards implemented November 23rd, 2008. This 7 cents per piece penalty will be imposed on the entire quantity in the mailing, not just the pieces that are deemed UAA.
