Residents Can Preview USPS Mail Before It Gets Delivered

Ever been expecting mail that was supposed to be delivered? Maybe if you knew by morning that it was not going to be in your mailbox, you could make phone calls to find out its status. A new digital service by the United States Postal Service (USPS) will let residents who sign up preview what is coming in the mail on their computer, tablet, or cell phone.

Informed Delivery from the USPS is an online service that will send a digitally scanned image of incoming mail. Usually, by 8 o’clock in the morning, you would get an e-mail with scanned copies of letter-sized mailpieces scheduled to be delivered later in the day. It also provides information on tracked parcels. Packages and/or envelopes are not opened.

The service is available for Roselle Park and anyone interested can sign up to confirm their actual address is eligible. Once confirmed and verified, Informed Delivery will start sending daily e-mails Monday through Saturday if there is mail set to be couriered.

Registration for Informed Delivery can be completed at the USPS website (link).
