Change of Address Announcement Letter

In some point in our lives, we move to another place. There are different factors affecting our address change, whether you are moving with your spouse together, your company designated you to a different location, or just for having a new location to live in. You must inform others about your moving by sending them a change of address letter.

A change of address letter is a written statement about your moving. It is essential to send these notices to your bosses, customers or your landlady. You can also send this to your immediate friends or relatives so that you can still keep on touch with them.

You must put your change of address letter in a clean sheet of paper or send them through email. There are some post offices who offer speed mailing, so use it if you need to send it quickly. It might take some time to make personal letters at once, so it is best to make your letters in general.

Writing a change of address letter has to be very short, simple and clear. It must also be very informative to avoid further questions in the future. If you are sending this to your boss or company, it has to be formal. For sending it with your friends, you can make it informal and make it an invitational home warming letter to make it more memorable.

Also attach a map or picture of your house so that others could go to your house easily. You must also include your phone, email address or name if it is also changed. You can send it three weeks in advance or on the exact date of your departure.

This is a sample change of address letter from an employee:

Change Of Address


Your correspondence, dated April 15, 1986 indicated that
I would be receiving a refund for the unused portion of
prorated insurance coverage provided under the above
referenced policy.

As of this date, I have not yet received this check.
Since I have moved, I am naturally concerned that the
check may have been sent to the wrong address.

Would you please let me know if a check has been
mailed. If not, I would appreciate your authorizing
one to be sent to the address indicated above.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.
