e-Statements: Safer than Paper Statements
With identity theft on everyone’s minds these days, it’s not hard to see why e-statements are something you might hesitate to sign up for. However, it’s actually safer to receive e-statements than it is to receive paper statements.
Your paper statements can be lost, stolen or somehow accessed in a way that your e-statements cannot. When you’re ready to dump them, paper statements should be shredded or destroyed in some other fashion. E-statements, on the other hand, really can’t be accessed by anyone who doesn’t have access to your service. Add in the ease of accessing them when you want to review or look something up, and you’re better off with electronically delivered statements than a paper copy that could end up in the wrong hands.
