Identify and Recover Dormant Permit Funds
- Do not assume you are getting refunds for closed accounts.
- If you have a permit account without activity for two years, the USPS® will send one letter to the person who originally took out the permit to come into the local Post Office within 30 days to request the funds or to pay the annual fee.
- If this does not happen, the funds will be transferred to a different general ledger account at the USPS® and it will be considered income to the Post Office for that year.
- You have the right to get the money back if you can prove you had a permit at that Post Office, but it is up to the client to initiate this request.
- The USPS® will never send another notification about these funds or make them available in any public database for you to search.
