When Should Personal Financial Records Be Shredded?

Self Storage Anaheim

Identity theft is a serious crime that can happen when it is least expected. In order to hack into your bank account or use your social security number, a criminal may try to take a look at your financial records. To protect yourself against crime, you will want to shred sensitive documents. While certain financial records, such as tax returns, need to be kept for up to 3 years, other documents, such as ATM receipts, can be shredded right away. Your financial advisor can provide you with more information about when to shred your confidential documents.

For added convenience and security when you are disposing of sensitive or financial documents, be sure to set up on-site document shredding with POUCH Self Storage .
