UAA Processing



 UAA (Undeliverable-As-Addressed) Suppression Flag Processing

Going beyond traditional list hygiene to detect undeliverable mail for suppression

UAA Suppression Flag Processing is a practical solution, with zero risk, for reducing the cost and waste associated with Undeliverable-As-Addressed mail. The UAA file is a unique, comprehensive national database of confirmed undeliverable mail based on ACSTM (Address Correction Service) intelligence on over 350+ million monthly consumer mailings covering 70+ million households. What’s the primary cause of UAA marketing mail that NCOALink® and CASSTM/DPV® will not catch? Consumer moves. In fact, up to 40% of all moves are not reported to the USPS. Or, you may have a valid address, but incorrect addressee due to death, divorce, missing apt. #, etc.

How big a problem is UAA mail?
UAA Suppression Processing accesses a central repository of compiled, confirmed Undeliverable-As-Addressed (UAA) data from multiple sources. UAA Suppression Processing will significantly reduce your mailing costs and paper waste associated with undeliverable mail. How big is the problem? Consider these statistics:

    • UAA is costing Direct Mailers over $6 billion per year.
    • Over 300 million pounds of paper wasted each year on UAA marketing mailings
    • On average, 7.5% of all Standard Mail® is undeliverable (rates can be as high as 15%)
    • UAA is costing the USPS over $1.5 billion per year

Note: NCOALink and CASS/DPV are necessary and very effective data hygiene products for identifying UAA mail that results from:
    • People who have moved and filed a change-of-address with the USPS (NCOALink)
    • Undeliverable addresses (CASS/DPV) only verifies a valid delivery point but does not
      certify the addressee

Annual Reduction in Client Mailing Costs - Example
