What is the NCOA?

June 2, 2009 at 2:03 pm Leave a comment

NCOA stands for National Change of Address. When a consumer turns in a card stating they’ve moved, the information is put into the NCOA system. The NCOA system updates both consumers and businesses who have notified the post office of their address change.

To qualify for discount postage rates, the list must be run through some type of Move Update program. This is for both First Class and Standard Class Mail service. We are not required to run the list through this program if you have “Current Resident” or “Current Business” added to the address area.

As of November 2008, all presorted mailings must undergo name and address correction within 95 days of the last mailing. The Postal Service has approved several methods to meet the Move Update requirements. At PostcardMania, we utilize the NCOA (National Change of Address) program to comply with the Move Update requirement.
