Quick Answer: Can Magazines Be Forwarded?

The USPS will stop forwarding periodicals to your new address 60 days after you move, so alert the magazine of your move as soon as possible.

If your move is temporary, the USPS will simply dispose of your magazine.

If your move is permanent, they will send the magazine back to the sender along with your new address.
