Important Places to Notify of Your Move to MA

In the weeks leading up to your move to Massachusetts, you feel like a chicken running around with its head cut off trying to get everything in order. Such tasks may include reserving Massachusetts movers, scheduling an installation of a new Internet service, finalizing closing procedures, and so forth. At the top of the list you should include who to notify about your change of address. Not doing so can lead to delays in mail deliveries and home services. Our Massachusetts movers of All My Sons Moving & Storage list important places to notify of your move to Massachusetts.


The Post Office

Out of all the important places to notify of your move to Massachusetts, this should be obvious. About two weeks before our full-service movers arrive, head down to the local post office to fill out a “change of address” form in-person or do so online at the USPS website.[1]  This service will forward your mail to the new address for up to 12 months, giving you more than enough time to update your address with other institutions such as your bank.


Your Employer

Your job should be next on your list of important places to notify of your local move to Massachusetts. Yes, you most likely receive direct deposit like everyone else, however, your employer needs an updated address to send you tax forms and paystubs if necessary.


Utility Companies

No one wants to arrive at their new home with no electricity, water, or gas active after a big move. Therefore, get in contact with the utility companies a couple of weeks before moving day. First, schedule a service cancellation for the old residence to make sure you won’t accumulate charges after moving out. Then schedule a service activation for the new home so that you’ll have utilities already active once moved in.


Social Security Administration

If you receive social security benefits or letters from the SSA, they need to be next on the list of places to notify when moving to Massachusetts. Update your address with them either through your my Social Security account [2] or call them at (800)772-1213.


Family & Friends

Of course, you can’t leave your loved ones off the list of important people to notify of your move to Massachusetts. Give them the updated address ahead of time so they can easily enter it into their GPS navigation system or have the correct address to send gifts and other important items.
