You’re Moving! Quicklinks to Change Your Address

You’re Moving! Congratulations on finding a new place to call home. Before the big move, click through our CityMove checklist to update your address in all the necessary places.

  • Start by saving yourself a trip to the post office and change your official address on the US Postal Service website. With just a quick $1.05 fee, you can safeguard your information with ID verification.  Save time by selecting ‘family’ if multiple members of your household have the same last name and forwarding address. As a bonus you’ll receive instant access to $500 in valuable coupons.
  • Moving in New York? Update your New York State Records (including NY State Drivers License or ID Card and Vehicle Registration) through the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles. Save time online at the DMV by using the online portal. Note: You’ll need your License number and Social Security Number to complete the online change form.
  • To have  electricity and gas turned on in your new place, call Con Edison Electric & Gas before you move. Con Ed lists what you’ll need before you call for service. It may take up to 24 hours for service to be turned on, so call their Customer Support as soon as you have your move-in date. If you’re a current customer, follow these steps but be sure to let the Customer Service Agent know when you will vacate your current address.
  • Schedule an appointment to have the internet, phone and cable installed in your new address. If you’re a current account holder, call your provider to ensure they can continue to provide service for you at your new address. Click on your service provider link to request your service and address change:
  • Time Warner Cable 
  • Verizon Fios 
  • Cablevision
  • Dish 
  • DirecTV
  • RCN
  • Don’t forget to update your address on websites that you receive or make payments to on a monthly basis. These can include but aren’t limited to financial institutions, mortgage companies, your employer, university, and more.
