How to Get My Post Office Statement

Updated March 28, 2017

A post office statement is the written record of your PO Box number and use. This statement acts as the receipt for payment and shows the time remaining between payments. These free records are available at your local post office. For your protection, you must present a picture ID at the PO Box location to get copies of your receipts-statements.
