If you want to designate an agent (i.e. a Commercial Mail Receiving Agent (CMRA)) to receive your mail in the United States, a PS Form 1583 will need to be completed, and signed in front of an agent or in front of a notary public. Neighbourhood Notary can help you notarize it.
What is it?
In United States, the United States Postal Service (USPS) regulates how mail can be received and handled.
If you require someone to receive your mail, the United States Postal Service (USPS) Form 1583 authorizes an agent (i.e. a Commercial Mail Receiving Agent (CMRA)) to receive your mail on your behalf. For example, if you are renting a P.O. Box, a postal mailbox, or a virtual mailbox, you will need to complete this form. It also ensures that a responsible party is linked to the mailbox. The form is required in order to ensure that no one is attempting to steal your mail and that it’s actually you authorizing the agent.
