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
