When to use the address form template

  • You need separate data elements. When you need to be able to parse out the specific parts of a mailing address.

When to consider something else

  • Nonstandard addresses. If you need to collect addresses that may not fit this format (for example, international addresses).
  • You don’t need separate data elements. If you don’t need to be able to parse out the individual pieces of an address, consider letting users type the entire address into one large text area.

Usability guidance

  • Deprecated USWDS 2.10.2 Don’t call out required fields. Call out optional fields instead. Users can infer that non-optional fields are required.
  • Avoid dropdowns. If possible, let users type their state’s abbreviation when they reach the state drop-down menu.
  • Support both five- and nine-digit ZIP codes. Some addresses require a nine-digit ZIP code. If you would like to use an input mask, it should be “#####-####” so that the text is properly formatted, regardless of whether a user enters a five- or nine-digit ZIP code.


Using the address form template

  • We limit the characters in the ZIP code field to numbers and the hyphen (-), following the pattern pattern="[\d]{5}(-[\d]{4})?". If you need your ZIP code field to allow non-U.S. postal codes that use a different pattern or require different characters, remove or edit the pattern property.
