Sending Postal Service Certified Mail provides you with proof of mailing. A delivery record is maintained at the recipient’s post office for two years. Certified Mail service is available only for First Class Mail. No insurance coverage is provided. A numbered label and completed receipt must be affixed. Labels and forms are available from Mailing Services. Costs of certification ($3.10) and Return Receipt ($2.55) plus postage will be charged to the department or can be paid by cash or Royal Card.
A signed receipt is your proof of delivery of Certified Mail, if it is returned to us. The Return Receipt identifies the article number, the person who signed for it, and the date that it was delivered. Be certain to identify your department on any return receipt so we can route the receipt back to you.
Courier Mail (UPS, FedEx, USPS Express) is accountable by airbill number. We maintain internal delivery records for six months by name, department, airbill or courier.
