Are updated addresses included in my exported file?
Yes; updated addresses are included in your NCOA download.
You will receive fully updated addresses for persons who have moved within the last 18-months and filed a change of address with USPS. Also, 48-month moves will be identified. In addition, this is all included for no additional cost.
TrueNCOA returns these new addresses in an additional row. The first record will have a record_type of ‘H’ for Historical. The second corresponding record will have a record_type of ‘C’ for Current. These two records will have matching record IDs. We recommend to either delete Historical records in your database or mark the Historical records as “historical” or “old”. Furthermore, you should not mail to these addresses.
