Moving - address changes and changes and changes

Tags: , , .

It's amazing how much information needs to change when you move. Here's a list:

  1. Post Office (online)
  2. Bank (maybe online)
  3. Credit Cards (usu online)
  4. Social Security (not easily done on line)
  5. Utilities: Electric, Gas, Propane Service, Telephone, Cable, satellite, Internet, VOIP - 9/11 service, XM radio
  6. IRS (download form on line and mail - impt for refund checks)
  7. Library
  8. Magazines
  9. Newspapers
  10. Insurance Policies
  11. Professional Associations
  12. Social Organizations
  13. Recreation centers: YMCA/YMHA, Country Club, etc...
  14. Family
  15. Friends
  16. Employer & Payroll Service
  17. Accountant
  18. Lawyer
  19. Brokerage accounts
  20. Mortgage providers (usu done when you buy the house, but not always if you own > 1)
  21. Auto loan providers
  22. Any lenders not included above
  23. Schools
  24. Anyone who owes you money
  25. Anyone you owe money (ethically you should tell them)
  26. Self-storage

As a strategy, I've been pulling aside my mail and making a list of everyone I can imagine. It's quite time consuming, but there's really no faster way.

Does anyone have a more efficient on-line approach?

Have a great Monday,

Don't know of any shortcuts. Moving is a torturous process. I moved once and didn't talk to a casual but well-liked friend for 5 years--when I got back in touch he said "I stopped by your house one day and someone else lived there."
