Through recent discussions with the United States Postal Service (USPS), all zip codes assigned to Wildwood are now identified with Wildwood as the default city. This represents a big change for Wildwood, which has a total of 7 zip codes, 5 of which are shared with nearby municipalities.
On May 2, 2017, Wildwood obtained agreement from USPS to take the following actions that will identify Wildwood as the corresponding city for its zip codes:
• First, the two zip codes that serve only Wildwood locations, 63038 and 63040, will now automatically identify Wildwood as the default city.
• Second, the remaining five zip codes that are shared with other nearby municipalities will be identified as Wildwood when the ZIP+4 exchanges assigned to Wildwood are used. These include 63005-xxxx, 63011-xxxx, 63021-xxxx, 63025-xxxx and 63069-xxxx.
Customers who wish to lookup their ZIP+4 can go to the United States Postal Service website and select “Look up a ZIP Code” under the “Mail and Ship” dropdown menu. Using a complete address (including the 9-digit ZIP Code) on all correspondence will not only better identify your City name, but will also increase efficiency and reduce delivery times.
Beginning on June 15, 2017, businesses and other senders likely began updating their respective databases to include the default Wildwood address. However, it can take up to a year before certain industry mailing lists are updated, depending on the reprocessing frequency they choose.
