Fact Sheet: Add Insurance

Now you can add insurance to your Click-N-Ship ser­vice labels. Available online at www.usps.com/clicknship for Priority Mail and Express Mail labels printed with post­age, coverage is available for up to $500 upon payment of applicable fees. Express Mail service provides coverage for the first $100 at no additional cost. Items must be properly packaged. Insurance is not available for items that are per­ishable, flammable, or too fragile to withstand normal han­dling in the mail. If you have insured an item online, you can mail it at a Post Office, hand it to your carrier, request free package pickup online, or drop it in a USPS collection box. Go to www.usps.com/insurance/online.htm for more infor­mation about online insurance.

For insurance coverage of more than $500, you may purchase retail insurance at a Post Office. Retail insurance provides coverage up to $5,000 and may not be combined with online insurance. Registered Mail service provides coverage up to $25,000.
