Zip-a-dee-do-dah

We've got a new zip code. We're now 60502 rather than 60504. How many times will I trip over that before I get the change committed to muscle (tongue) memory? I'd have forgotten to get that on my driver's license renewal last week, but apparently the DMV guy has seen a lot of people with changes recently, so he thought to ask.

One of the things we get for moving into a fast-growing area. This is our third zip code in the same house, now matching the three area codes we've gone through.

  • Was that link supposed to point to something? Cause you fail.

  • It was, and apparently I do.

    It was pointing to an article with a zip code map of the area. Now I can either find that link and fix it (smacks of effort), or just remove the link (smacks of less effort).

  • So ... what all needs to be changed? Your address on your license? Or do car titles need to be re-somethinged? I wouldn't say reregistered, but I don't know what's involved. Do you need to tell the post office? (Since it's their fault.)

  • You know how on a lot of things that you mail back (bills, magazine renewals, etc) you can make an address change right on the piece you're mailing back -- that'll take care of most of it.

    A lot of other stuff will get dealt with on websites just by updating profiles (RPGA, for example).

    Pretty much anything else will just get delayed by at most a day, as one side of the post office shuffles it to the other side. I'm assuming that 60502 and 60504 (as well as 60505 and the new 60503) will all be still dealt with out of the main Aurora post office building. 6050* should get it close enough for them to find the address.

  • I think car registration is like some of the other stuff - fix it on the form that's returned. We often walk it in anyway (since we're often either late or just pushing the expiration).

  • And there is no hurry to get things changed--you have a year before you should notice any delay in getting the mail. So start getting used to the new zip code, but don't freak out.
