Mail delivery question

My grandma has curbside delivery for US Mail but she has physical limitations that prevent her from going to the curb to retrieve her mail so I'd like to know the procedure to get her mail delivered to a house box mounted by the side door. I know the postal service has to make accommodations for people with physical limitations but you ask at the post office they give you the run around. She lives in a suburban setting so it would not be an undue burden for the mailman to deliver to the house. The curbside mailbox is about 40 feet from the door.

I've experienced ImOn (when they were McLeod USA), Mediacom, Comcast, and Time Warner. They are much better than broadcast TV.

I have not and will not cut the cord.

You need to contact her Postmaster and she will have to get her Doctor's evaluation as to her limitation in order for her to have her mailbox moved from curbside to on her house.There is no way around for this to be done(Since I am a letter carrier,and have those with special needs request movement of the mail box to their house). Note that if she moves for any reason that mailbox has to go back to the curbside effective when she moves.

said by USPS :
Hardship/Medical Problems

"Hardship or Medical Problems" is defined as an illness or handicap which would present a physical challenge for an individual to retrieve mail.

To request door delivery, you need to write a letter requesting this change and attach a statement from a Doctor. The Doctor's statement should indicate you are unable to collect your mail from a curb or centralized mailbox. Both your letter and the Doctor's statement must be sent to the Post Office that delivers your mail for approval or denial. Final determination on whether or not door delivery will be granted will be made by the Post Office.

Request letters should be addressed:

POSTMASTER
UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE
CITY, STATE ZIP CODE

Note: Any approval will be temporary (further information can be obtained from the local Post Office)
