U.S. Postal Service

If you’re planning to be away from home and can’t pick up your mail, contact the U.S. Postal Service at 1-800-275-8777 or online at USPS.gov to request a mail hold. The Postal Service will hold your mail at your local post office until you can pick it up or are home to receive it.

A mail hold is a free service that will help to protect your mail from being stolen from your mailbox and reduce the likelihood of an identity thief getting access to personal information in your mail such as credit card statements.
