Default Post Office

Just gotta rant a little. About a month ago our auto insurance bill got returned to our local agent and marked "return to sender, unable to deliver". My wife googled US postal service and called the 1-800 number that popped up. She told the person on the line what was going on and would like to confirm our physical address with them so we wouldn't have trouble getting our mail. She was told nobody there has access to that information. WTF? How does no one at the postal service have that info. She spent a good hour on the phone even speaking to a "supervisor" and being told the same thing by them. The supervisor said its because we hadn't filled out a change of address form. It took 3 times for this guy to understand we hadn't moved so that form wasn't filled out for a reason.

So now we've been waiting on a $2500 aflac check and had to have them put a stop payment on it cause only god knows where it is. Anybody else have this kind of trouble with them?

Have you asked Aflac to verify your address? Are you getting your other mail?

I have never had this kind of problem. Is AFLAC involved in both 'snafu's'? If so, I think Jpyl is right, check with AFLAC. Maybe a number in your address got switched or something.

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-11-15/u-s-postal-service-on-tightrope-loses-15-9-billion.html

Quote:
The U.S. Postal Service said its net loss last year widened to $15.9 billion, more than the $15 billion it had projected, as mail volume continued to drop, falling 5 percent.
Without action by Congress, the service will run out of cash on Oct. 15, 2013, after it makes a required workers compensation payment to the U.S. Labor Department and before revenue typically jumps with holiday-season mailing, Chief Financial Officer Joe Corbett said today.
The service, whose fiscal year ends Sept. 30, lost $5.1 billion a year earlier. It announced the 2012 net loss at a meeting at its Washington headquarters.
“We are walking a financial tightrope,” Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe said at the meeting. “Will we ever stop delivering the mail? It will never happen. We are simply too important to the economy and the flow of commerce.”
The Postal Service uses about $250 million a day to operate and will have less than four days of cash on hand by the end of the fiscal year, Corbett said.
The service is asking Congress to enact legislation before it adjourns this year that would allow the Postal Service to spread future retirees’ health-benefit payments over more years, stop Saturday mail delivery, and more easily close post offices and processing plants.
Over Edge
“The Postal Service is facing a fiscal cliff of its own and any unanticipated drop in mail volumes could send the agency over the edge,” said Art Sackler, co-coordinator of the Coalition for a 21st Century Postal Service, whose members include Bank of America Corp. and EBay Inc. (EBAY) “If Congress fails to act, there could be postal slowdowns or shutdowns that would have catastrophic consequences for the 8 million private sector workers whose jobs depend on the mail.”
Aw, cut em some slack, their worried about their jobs.

Liberals are constantly telling us about the poor and oppressed in this country. With that in mind, why do they feel the need to keep importing poor people from other countries?

Yes aflac has the correct address and they aren't involved with both snafu's. The first was our auto insurance statement. Wasn't much of an issue with it as our agent is close by, wife just went and got the statement after work.

Also the insurance agent had the statement addressed correctly.
