You’re used to setting up appointments, paying bills and shopping online. So, why not get your financial documents online too? It’s not just convenient—you might be surprised how much more secure it is than using paper documents. Switching to eDocuments is a great way to give you more control over your time and enjoy easy access to your statements, tax forms and notices. Not sold on switching over? Here are a few reasons to make the change.

1. Increase Your Security

“Snail mail” is an easy target for scammers. Whether your documents get delivered to the wrong address or someone looks through your personal mailbox, your paper documents may not be safe. Switching to eDocuments can give you an added layer of protection by sending your sensitive documents directly to your online account where they can only be accessed with your secure login information.

2. Clean up the Clutter

Gone are the days of multiple filing cabinets filling up your personal office or scattered papers on the kitchen table. Using eDocuments allows you to have digital files of all your banking information in one place without the clutter. You can easily search through categorized information on the go or at home. No need to shred papers or find a safe place to tuck your documents away. eDocuments help reduce the stress of too much mess!

3. Go Green!

Going paperless helps the environment. Fewer physical copies of your documents mean a reduction of paper use. Additionally, less paper production lessens the amount of greenhouse gases associated with paper manufacturing, printing and transportation. Do your part in cleaning up the paper trail and switch over to eDocuments.

Why Wait?
