I have been using a PMB for about 20 years and Bank of America and my various investing sites have never blinked an eye. Just get rid of PMB and use # or Apt or Unit, whatever.

Merrill wouldn't accept it, no way, even after I had been a customer for years and was simply changing the address. One Amex account accepted it, and one wouldn't. I gave up on the second and simply continued to use the existing address...which was a PMB (UPS Store). Chase apparently didn't care.

It doesn't matter if you put apt or whatever if it shows up as a commercial mail facility.

I believe it is going to be harder to vote in areas withered large numbers of full timers register. The local election officials rightly take a dim view of those voters, especially when it comes to local issues. There is something wrong with people who never step foot in town or county voting on bond issues, county elected officials, school boards etc. A crackdown wouldn’t surprise me.


No, local officials don't take a dim view of full timers, at least not in Livingston, as we provide a lot of jobs for people who live in Livingston, we provide money for their bridge upkeep fund and do not use the roads, and we count in the census which increases the numbers in the town, which helps when getting federal grants, etc.

The camel in the tent that you didn't ask about is that financial institutions are unlikely to accept a PMB address.


And here we've been using our Livingston address for 16 years without a problem. Hmmmm.

At least one Federal court has ruled that a mail forwarding service IS a legal address.

Yes some do have issues some don’t . The ones that do let you list another address , different from your domicile pmb ,, like using a relative as the mailing address. It only applies to some investment or bank accounts . The rest will normally accept a mail forwarder pmb address. Use it for everything and the relative or friend for those specific accounts . They really just want some real address that the people there will know you .part of the homeland security laws. In fact they let me use the relative in a different state and I listed my mailing address as the pmb . Doesn’t make sense but it is what it is.

I just got my TX driver's license upgraded to a "Real ID" using the TX PMB. Banking good, investments good, credit cards good, taxes good. However, yesterday I was looking at the Capital One CC and it said you could check to see if you are pre-approved. As soon as i hit the address line it kick me out and said I could not use that kind of address. Oh well, it doesn't all work!

Did Capital One kick out a Rainbow Drive domicile address? A place that you could actually life at? So people that reside at the park wouldn't be accepted as Capital One customers?
