REVISED FORM

PS Form 1094, Request for Post Office Box Key or Lock Service

PS Form 1094, Request for Post Office Box Key or Lock Service, has been revised to reflect the June 30, 2002, fee changes. Post Office box key duplication or replacement (after the first two keys) has increased from $4.00 to $4.40. This fee is not refundable and applies only to additional keys (after the first two keys given to customers at the start of their Post Office box service). The additional key fee does not apply to worn or broken keys, which you replace without charge.

There are no changes to the $1.00 key deposit. When customers begin Post Office box service, give them two keys when they pay a refundable $1.00 deposit for each key assigned, including any additional keys requested. When the Post Office box service is terminated (by the customers or Post Office), refund the $1.00 deposit for each key turned into the Postal Service (including the additional keys).

The total cost to the customer for each additional key is now $5.40, which includes $4.40 for each additional key requested by the Post Office box customer and the $1.00 refundable key deposit fee for each key assigned. On PS Form 1094, enter the total number of keys assigned in the "Number of Keys Assigned" box. Enter the additional keys assigned in the "Fee Calculation" box. You should collect the $1.00 deposit for all keys assigned, with the $4.40 fee just for additional keys.

The Post Office lock replacement fee has increased from $10.00 to $11.00. This fee is not refundable and applies to all kinds of Post Office box locks (including combination locks). The fee does not apply to replacement of a damaged lock, but you may need to collect key deposits and fees for the new keys. If customers turn in the keys to the "old lock," then refund the $1.00 key deposit. Give customers two keys with each new lock (they must pay the key deposit for those keys and the key fee and deposit for any additional keys requested). For more information regarding Post Office Box fee changes, see Postal Bulletin 22075A (5-9-02, page 17).

PS Form 1094, Request for Post Office Box Key or Lock Service
 

The article "Revised Form: PS Form 1094, Request for Post Office Box Key or Lock Service" in Postal Bulletin 22066 (12-27-01, pages 73-74) listed the incorrect information for Touch Tone Order Entry and the incorrect Quick Pick Number.

The correct Quick Pick Number for PS Form 1094 is 113.

The correct information is "Call 1-800-332-0317, option 1, then option 2."

Corrected information is shown in bold in the revised article below.

PS Form 1094 (see page 28), Request for Post Office Box Key or Lock Service, has been revised to reflect the January 7, 2001, fee changes. In particular, a $10 lock replacement fee has been added under the "Reason for Request" section. The "Fee Calculation (For Additional Keys Only)" section has also been changed to $5. Included in the $5 fee is $1 for the key deposit and $4 for each additional key. Recycle old forms and replace them with the revised PS Form 1094. Supplies are available in the Material Distribution Center.

Remember that the primary box customer (box applicant) may request that the Post Office box lock be changed. To change the lock, the customer must first pay the applicable lock fee as described in Domestic Mail Manual (DMM) R900.19.0. Lock fees are charged for replacing keyed locks and combination locks and for resetting combination locks. Lock fees are not refundable. Customers may turn in Post Office box keys for the old lock and receive a refund of the key deposit. Two keys are provided with each new lock, with a refundable deposit for each key charged under R900.19.0. Customers may obtain additional keys for the new lock under R900.19.0.
