QUESTION: What does CASS stand for?

ANSWER: CASS is a United States Postal Service (USPS) acronym that stands for Coding Accuracy Support System. The term CASS is widely used by the USPS when referring to the verification status of an address list. In order for an address list to receive CASS certification, the list must be checked against the USPS Address Matching System (AMS) CD-ROM, a match must be found for each address, and the correct 11-digit Delivery Point ZIP code and corresponding bar code must be added.

CASS is particularly important to mailers because of the difference between "automation" and "non-automation" mailing rates, which is about five cents per piece. For a 10,000-piece mailing, CASS certification of the address list could save the mailer approximately $500.00. Only addresses with the Delivery Point ZIP code and corresponding bar code are eligible for automation bulk mailing rates.
