Why should I rent a safe deposit box?
A safe deposit box offers privacy and security in a facility away from your home. Additionally, it offers protection against fire and theft.
What should I keep in a safe deposit box?
Any personal items that you cannot afford to lose. For example, documents such as birth, marriage, death certificates, deeds, titles, mortgages, lease agreements, insurance policies and other financial contracts like stocks, bonds and certificates of deposit (CDs). Other valuables you may want to keep in your safe deposit box include jewelry, rare stamps and other collectibles, and videos or pictures of your home's contents for insurance purposes in case of theft or damage.
What items should not be kept in a safe deposit box?
Anything you might need in an emergency. For example, originals of a "power of attorney" (your written authorization for another person to transact business on your behalf), passports, medical-care, funeral or burial instructions you make. Consider giving the originals to your attorney, and simply making copies to go in your safe deposit box.
