I went by Multiservicios Internacionales De Chiriquí this morning to get my mail delivery from Florida. I was surprised to find that my Florida address would be changing on February 15.
I moved to Multiservicios due to poor service by my prior Florida mail forwarding company and the move required changing a large number of addresses with companies in the U.S..
My service with Multiservicios Internacionales De Chiriquí/Pakya has been satisfactory. I really don’t care for any mail forwarding companies, but they are a necessary evil if you are a U.S. citizen living in Panama and want U.S. credit cards sent to you. Many U.S. credit card companied won’t issue cards to a foreign address and it would most likely get lost in the Panama Post Office anyway.
I asked if the address could be changed prior to February 15th and was told “no”. What a bummer!
Luckily, I now have my address for the IRS and for U.S. Social Security listed at the David post office to satisfy the POL requirement by the Social Security.
Still I will have many addresses that must be changed. This is just another of the types of annoyances that come with the good weather that keeps me here. Oh, well. Nothing is perfect, some things less so than others.
