How Do I Meet The USPS Move Update (NCOA) Requirement For Bulk Mail

Save money on NCOA processing with TrueNCOA

Returned mail can be an expensive double whammy. Any mail that’s returned to you is money lost on wasted postage. It costs a few cents here and there if a few mail pieces get returned. But, the cost of wasted postage can pile up if entire segments of your mail campaign are getting returned to you (remember… 12% of Americans move every year).

When a mail piece gets returned to your organization, it’s a drain on your time and resources. Someone has to review the mail, understand what went wrong, and correct the address in your database. On top of that, you’ve wasted postage and missed an engagement opportunity with your donor.

Crucially, to qualify for non-profit and bulk mail discounts, mailers must meet the United States Postal Service’s Move Update Standard. This standard requires mailers who claim presorted or automation prices for First-Class Mail® or Standard Mail® service to demonstrate that they have updated their mailing list within 95 days before the mailing date.

You don’t qualify for these discounts if you don’t meet the Move Update Standard. Use an NCOA service every 95 days to stay USPS compliant and to benefit from bulk mailing rates.
