With identity theft on everyone’s minds these days, it’s not hard to see why you may hesitate to sign up for electronic statements. After all, cyberspace is kind of big and scary and full of shady characters, right?
Who knows how many people could get their hands on your credit union statement if you opt for electronic statements? Actually, probably a lot less than the number of people who could get their hands on your paper statement.
Electronic Statements = Safety and Security
Paper statements can become lost or stolen. All it takes is one person to break into your mailbox to have your account information compromised. You don’t have that issue with electronic statements.
When you’re ready to dump them, paper statements should be shredded or destroyed in some other fashion. E-statements, on the other hand, can’t be accessed by anyone who doesn’t have access to your service. Shredding is not a problem.
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.
