What do I enter in the field “In care of”?

Are you a student? Do you work abroad? If so, you may want someone to collect your mail for you until your return you come home. The In care of field allows you to enter the name of a friend or family member who’s responsible for receiving your mail while you’re away. Generally speaking, you’ll only need to provide this information if you move around a lot, or spend a lot of time away from home for work.

Remember, if you’re entering someone’s name in the In care of field, the mailing address you provide to us on the Your mailing address page should be the address of the person who is receiving your mail.
