First-Class Mail Letter (Certified Mail)

Certified Mail is a special USPS service that provides the person sending the mailpiece with an official receipt showing proof the item was mailed. When the package is delivered, the mail carrier requires a signature from the recipient. That signature is stored in the USPS database for a period of 2 years. Customers can also add a Return Receipt service (electronic or physical) to their Certified Mail mailpiece that will deliver a copy of the recipient’s signature to the sender. The Electronic Return Receipt option shows the recipient’s signature via email. The physical Return Receipt option is a postcard mailed to the sender that contains the actual recipient’s signature providing proof the mailing was delivered or that a delivery attempt was made.

Common Uses of Certified Mail:

  • Time Sensitive Communications With Debtors or Creditors 
  • Bank Documents 
  • Tax Returns
