National Change of Address (NCOA) Processing

Experian Data Quality's NCOALink® processing searches your address database against the USPS® change-of-address form (COA®) for the past 48 months of data. Ensure you have the most up to date data in your mailing database.

NCOALink processing

NCOA® processing from Experian Data Quality:

  • Has shown to increase deliverability by 400%.
  • Meets NCOA® database requirements to qualify for Standard and First-Class Mail discounts
  • Searches against 160 million records.

NCOA®processing validates each name and address in your data file, employing USPS® address correction that verifies the correct address for each customer. Once the address information is validated, each name and address is matched against the NCOALink® database. This NCOALink®database contains change-of-address (COA) data gathered from the USPS® on individuals, families, and businesses that have moved. 

When a match is made against the NCOALink® file, we will update the information with the current name and address from the USPS® change of address database.

Before Experian cleansing, we did not have the ability to standardize every address that came through from our website platform. Today we are able to not only standardize and get NCOA information, we have an idea of who is deliverable or not.  This has helped decrease our costs in mailing gold cards for our MSR members.
