Benefits of Shredding Personal Documentation
Shredding sensitive documents allows both businesses, and private citizens comfort knowing that their personal information has been disposed of in a manner that prevents others from getting their hands on it. These days identity theft is an increasingly more prevalent problem, making it more important than ever before to properly dispose of your information. Criminals have been known to dumpster dive in order to obtain information that can be used against you to open credit cards, transfer money illegally, write checks, put services and items in your name, and so much more.
You can declutter your space, clean out your cabinets, and make room for current documentation that you need. Often times, people will allow these sensitive documents to build into towers, knowing they need to dispose of them properly but also not making the time to do so.
What Documents Are Necessary To Shred
A good rule of thumb when deciding if something should be shredded or not is if it has someone’s signature, an account number, social security number, or information regarding medical or legal information, it needs to be shredded!
This includes but is not limited to: ATM receipts, bank statements, birth certificate copies, canceled and voided checks, credit and charge card bills, carbon copies, summaries and receipts, credit reports and histories, documents containing maiden name (used by credit card companies for security reasons), documents containing names, addresses, phone numbers or e-mail addresses, documents relating to investments, documents containing passwords or PIN numbers, driver’s licenses or items with a driver’s license number, employee pay stubs, employment records, expired passports and visas, unlaminated identification cards (college IDs, state IDs, employee ID badges, military IDs), legal documents, investment, stock and property transactions, items with a signature (leases, contracts, letters), luggage tags, medical and dental records, papers with a Social Security number, pre-approved credit card applications, receipts with checking account numbers, report cards, resumés or curriculum vitae, tax forms, transcripts, travel itineraries, used airline tickets, utility bills (telephone, gas, electric, water, cable TV, Internet)
