The Postal Service is working to reconnect customers in the Gulf Coast region with their mail in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

Beginning Sept. 1, customers in Houston and Rio Grande districts who receive Treasury checks via U.S. Mail — including checks from the Social Security Administration, Veterans Administration and other agencies — can pick up these checks at a Post Office location near their ZIP Code.

The Postal Service also announced it will distribute any identifiable medications sent through the mail.

Additionally, USPS is reminding customers to complete change-of-address requests, especially if they expect to be out of their homes for extended periods.

The Aug. 31 news releases for Houston District and Rio Grande District customers have more information.
