Why go paperless? If you’re still receiving your monthly account statement through the mail, you might wonder what all the fuss is about. After all, it’s probably a complicated process to switch over to e-statements – and you already have a way to receive your account info, right?
Well, it might not be quite “right” anymore. Switching to e-statements can do you more favors than you might think, and the process to go paperless is incredibly simple.
FIVE REASONS TO GO PAPERLESS
- PAPER STATEMENTS ARE MORE VULNERABLE TO CRIMINALS
When you go paperless, you eliminate the risk of your mail falling into the wrong hands. With e-statements, your personal information remains behind multiple layers of encryption and digital defense. As you probably know, identity thieves and scammers have been especially aggressive lately. One of the ways they attempt to get your personal information is through your mail, particularly mailed account statements. Rather than leaving your data vulnerable, avoid paper documents entirely and go paperless.
- E-STATEMENTS ARE CONVENIENT
When you go paperless, you’ll have access to your statements – and individual transactions – just about any time you want. And you can access your info on your computer, tablet or through our FFCCU app. No need to stash paper statements away in a file cabinet (or in the infamous ‘junk’ drawer). Plus, you won’t have to rely on the sloth-like speed of snail mail, as your statement will be available nearly the moment it is created. Lose the inconvenience of all that paper and trade it for the easy access of e-statements whenever and wherever.
- PAPERLESS E-STATEMENTS ARE ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY
Getting a paper statement means an envelope and one or more sheets of paper. Every month. It might not seem like a lot, but when you consider that many people are continually getting statements it starts to add up over time! You can easily minimize this tremendous paper waste and soften your environmental impact by deciding to go paperless.
