GREENSBURG, KS -- You may have mail. When Greensburg, Kansas and Kiowa County residents and business owners left their battered or destroyed homes and businesses, mail to those addresses became undeliverable. Residents and business owners in Greensburg and Kiowa County need to notify the post office of their new mailing address. Without the newest change of address, mail cannot be forwarded and may cause important information or checks to be returned as undeliverable.

Each time applicants move they need to notify both the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the U.S. Post Office of their new address so any mail sent by friends, family, and the federal government can be delivered.

Some federally issued checks may not be forwarded and must be mailed directly to the recipient. Storm victims are encouraged to contact agencies issuing checks they expect to receive and provide a new mailing address.

To update their address with FEMA, applicants should call the telephone number they called to register for aid: 1-800-621-FEMA (3362) or TTY 1-800-462-7585.

To put in a change of address with the U. S. Postal Service, persons may visit any U.S. Post Office or use the postal services telephone or internet change of address options. Change of addresses can be filed online at www.usps.com or by calling: 1-800-ASK-USPS (800-275-8777). Those individuals without telephone service or internet access should go to the nearest post office, complete a change of address form, and submit it to the postal employee at the counter or mail it. It is postage free.

If Greensburg and Kiowa County storm victims have not registered for disaster relief funds, in order to receive funds they need to register now by calling 1-800-621-FEMA (3362) or TTY 1-800-462-7585.
