Registered Mail

Accountable Mail includes all Registered, Certified, Insured and Express Mail

Definition
Registered Mail – the registered mail system is designed to provide added protection for valuable mail. Postage insurance may be purchased to cover articles valued up to $25,000.

Registered mail is the most secure mail the Postal Service offers. It incorporates a system of receipts to monitor registered articles from the point of acceptance to delivery. Return receipt and restricted delivery services are available for additional fees. Added security may delay your delivery.

Registered mail is separated and does not travel with other First-Class mail because of the high degree of security.

See Sample at the bottom of this page

A numbered label and completed receipt must be affixed.

Return Receipt (Optional) – A return receipt is your proof of delivery. It is available for insured mail and with registered, certified and domestic express mail service. The return receipt identifies the article number, who signed for it and the date it was delivered. It is not necessary to utilize a return receipt on all certified or registered mailings. Be certain to identify your Department Name, Address including the Mailstop (MS) number on any return receipt so we can route them back to your department.
