For each change of address, you’ll receive an email confirming the delivery of your personal information. If you don’t receive a confirmation email, return to the “Review and send” step to make sure that every service provider is in the “Moving forms sent” column on the right.

Note: Every company has a different policy regarding change of address confirmations. Some companies confirm with you by email, by phone or by mail. Other organizations, though, don’t confirm with you. That’s why we recommend  verifying your personal information directly with your service providers next time you contact them.
