Going green by going paperless is much less of a trend these days than
a way of life. If you’re still receiving paper statements from your
credit union, it’s time to kick the habit and embrace digitization.
It’s easy to sign up for
eStatements; your credit union will likely let you opt out of the paper version through
Control the Clutter
One of the major reasons why eStatements have become so popular is that
they help you exercise some measure of control over your mailbox. If you’re
fed up with sorting through stacks of junk mail every evening, then opting
for eStatements from your credit union could be a good choice for you.
You will be able to access your eStatements online from anywhere at any
time, which means you won’t have to worry about losing your information.
Since you can readily retrieve old eStatements, it’s easy to keep
your personal finances organized.
Safeguard Your Personal Information
Identity theft continues to grow at an alarming pace and anyone could become
the next target. Although your credit union can help you sort through
the problems associated with identity theft, it may take years to recover
from the effects on your credit history. One way to improve the security
of your personal information is to make the switch from paper documents
to eStatements. Unlike paper documents, which can be retrieved from the
trash, eStatements are secured and private.
Be Environmentally Friendly
Another benefit of going paperless is that it’s beneficial for the
environment. If you’re concerned about the depletion of natural
resources, then you’re likely looking for ways of reducing your
“footprint.” Digital statements from your credit union are
an easy way to live a greener life.
