USPS link as is today

Here is the link to the USPS (United States Postal Service) site today, that explains how address change works now.

There is a Privacy Act statement.

Obviously, to put in a plan like what is suggested below would require legal attention from Congress first. Such a mechanism would require an appropriation from Congress (starting in the House of Representatives), and a systems development effort managed by the appropriate agency (probably the USPS).

Several companies (software companies and financial services companies) would have to be involved in developing the interfaces and performing the quality assurance and platformed inplementation. The interfaces would probably involve passing data as XML and using various modern W3C information exchange protocols like SOAP. A project like this would certainly generate some information technology jobs.
