As technology continues to advance, the transition to electronic documentation has become more relevant. Paper bills, statements, and notices are now able to be replaced with secure digital options which saves the environment by reducing paper waste and fuel costs, helps lower costs to businesses, and most importantly benefits you.
It is an unfortunate fact that our mail system isn’t perfect. There is always a chance that your mail gets delayed, lost, or even stolen. Enrolling into a digital option not only insures that you get your items near immediately, but also reduces the risk of someone unauthorized gaining access to your documents. It is much more difficult to steal out of someone’s email than out of their mailbox.
Electronic documents also have the benefit of easy access and reduced clutter. Instead of digging through drawers in search of last year’s W2s or for an old bill showing that you did actually pay for that gym membership last year, electronic documents are typically accessible from any device, have built in organization, and the files themselves are most likely searchable further adding to convenience.
Enrolling in eStatements for your bank accounts is highly recommended, but don’t forget that there are other systems that you can also benefit from going paperless. Utility bills, payroll stubs, government forms, and the list continues to grow every day. With every form you eliminate from physical channels you make your life a little faster, a lot easier, and reduce paper waste along the way.
