What is Adult Signature Required & Restricted Delivery?

Adult Signature Required:

Adult signature required can be looked upon as an attempt to secure your parcels even better. In the event of your absence, USPS tries to ensure that your shipment does not fall into the hands of an underage person. The only motive behind this is to ensure that your parcel reaches you or anyone who does not manhandle with your package.

Under this service, for receiving a parcel on someone’s behalf, the recipient should be at least 21 years of age. Before the product is handed over, the recipient just needs to produce any valid or government-issued document for verification and that’s it!

So, the required documents would be two; a photo identity for verifying recipient’s age, and in some other cases, a proof of receiver’s identity may be needed.

This service, however, does not guarantee the time of delivery as it is subject to circumstances. Also, no record of your package is maintained in USPS offices if it is an adult signature required shipment.

Adult Signature Restricted Delivery:

Adult signature restricted delivery is a little different from adult signature required service. Here, the recipient needs to produce a name before taking the shipment, unlike the latter where a mere photo identification and age proof were sufficient.

This service again ensures that the mailing is recipient specific. The delivery requires the signature of the recipient log with a photo identity and age proof of the same. This way of transportation is safer than in verified means as the product may be subjected to manhandling when in the hands of an underage.
