Once USPS has approved your claim, you will receive an email notifying you. You should then receive a check for the claim amount via mail within 7 to 10 business days.
When filling out the USPS claim form, be sure to double-check that the address included as the Payment Address is correct, as this is where the check will be sent.
Shipment insurance is included with many USPS services. Even if you have never had a lost or damaged package, you will be glad for the option to file a claim. Find out how to file an insurance claim with USPS.
