This is my very 1st move. So can someone tell me exactly how I can transfer all my mail to my new address and cancel it at my old one? I will be moving soon. Can I all do this online or do i have to go to a USPS place? Also do I have to call every place to let them know of my new address or do they all get their info from the USPS database? I am really confused.

You can either do a change of address online or in person at a post office. I would certainly contact all of your creditors (you can do this online or via a phone call) with your new address - it can sometimes take a while before the mail actually starts being delivered to your new address.

for example what about drivers license? what if i am in houston but moving to a new address? I went to the dps texas website and they said it will cost $10 to change my address, does that mean I will get a new drivers license in the mail with my new address on it? or does it mean that the change of address is only kept on their computers but I will still have my old license? I'm confused.

They send you a new license with the new address, thus the charge. Do it online if you can to avoid the horrible lines at the office.

Also, forward your mail at the usps.com website.

Also individually forward mail from anything that you already get regularly, like magazines, so they'll have your new address.

The mail forwarding thing you're looking for is called "Mover's Guide." You can do it in person with the postcard for free, or you can pay $1 for each instance by doing it online.

ok thanks for the info everyone! I just hope I don't leave anyone out that will be important. I guess I don't need to notify IRS since they get their info from the USPS database.

I already did my drivers license, USPS, and bank. I don't know what else is left. I think that's pretty much it.
