What is NCOA?
While over 40 Million people in the United States alone change their address every year, it is very important to keep your list up to date with the new location of your contacts. The National Change of Address system (NCOA) uses the USPS database of all people and businesses. Change of Address information must have been submitted to USPS. An NCOA update can save you money by eliminating contacts no longer at the address specified on your list and updating to the most current address. FYI – the post office recycles Standard Class mail if the address is incorrect, it will not be forwarded; NCOA has the ability to correct the address prior to the mail being sent so your contact will receive your mailer at their new address.
