Sign up online, or download form

Members who wish to utilize this service can enroll online or submit the Mail Forwarding Information Form. Members must establish a $50 deposit in a postage account with FMCA. This deposit may be paid by American Express, Discover, MasterCard or VISA. When the balance in a participant’s postage account falls to approximately $15, the member’s credit card will be charged the amount needed to bring the deposit up to $50.

Low monthly fee

In addition to the postage charge, mail forwarding participants pay an $8 monthly fee. The fee will be charged the first time mail is sent in a new month and postage is debited to that account, or when mail is picked up from the receptionist at FMCA's Round Bottom Road office in Cincinnati. The $8 fee will be deducted from the mail forwarding participant's postage account. The monthly fee is charged only to members actively using the mail forwarding service.

The $8 charge will be identified as a "Mail Forwarding Service Fee" on the mail forwarding postage statement/invoice, along with the date. When a member notifies FMCA to close his or her mail forwarding account, the account will be removed from active status. Accounts that are not active but are in the process of being closed will be charged $2 for each mailing, and no more than $8 per month.

Forward First Class, Priority or FedEx

FMCA's mail forwarding service is applicable to all types of mail, e.g., letters, magazines and packages (except bulk rate catalogs). FMCA bundles all mail and forwards via First Class (when applicable) or Priority Mail. Or, participants may request FedEx.

Postal Service Form 1583 required

The United States Postal Service has determined that FMCA’s mail forwarding service operates as a commercial mail receiving agency (CMRA) by accepting members’ mail from the Postal Service and forwarding it to another address. Therefore, all mail forwarding participants must complete and submit Postal Service Form 1583, Application for Delivery of Mail Through Agent (available from the FMCA national office or online at FMCA.com).

Mail should be addressed as follows:
