What do I need to update if my address is going to change?

Here is a checklist (PDF) that will help guide you through the address change process.

Inform or update your business, service, and personal contacts, such as:

  • Banks and other financial institutions
  • Credit card companies
  • Insurance providers
  • Internal Revenue Service (Complete Form 8822 )
  • Magazines and newspapers 
  • Online shopping sites. 
  • Cable or internet providers
  • Clubs or organizations 
  • The Department of Motor Vehicles: Please update your address with the DMV 30 days after the date your address officially changes.
  • TSA PreCheck 
  • An application for a passport that is currently in process (see below)
  • Friends and family

If you already have a passport, you do not need to update your address. However, if your application is currently in process, call the National Passport Information Center at 877-487-2778.  For more information, see Travel.State.Gov.  

No changes to your property deed are necessary. Property is generally described in deeds by the legal description, the PIN/MCPI, and Tax Map #.  While some older deeds may reference a street name or an address, it is not necessary to update your deed.

It may take private companies a month or more to update their databases with your new address. If you regularly order from a company that uses a delivery service other than USPS (such as FedEx) or from a company such as Amazon, please verify that that they have a record of your new address before placing an order. Until your new address has been updated, they should continue to recognize your former address.    

If you need a copy of a building or zoning permit with your address after the date it becomes effective, call the Department of Building and Development at 703-777-0220.
