Mark your calendar for Security Back's annual Community Shred Day, taking place Saturday, May 20. 

It's time to purge old paperwork and dispose of old personal and business documents safely. 

“It’s important to not toss personal identifiable mail and documents in the trash, as thieves can use this information to steal your identity, the identity of an employee and more,” said Lynette Lambert, Security Bank SBA loan officer.

Examples of items to shred:

  • Paid utility, credit card and medical bills

  • Employee records

  • Old pay stubs, bank statements, investment documents

  • and confidential records

  • Items with personal identifiable information (old credit reports/histories and IDs)

  • Expired permanent records (passports, driver’s licenses, insurance policies)

  • Canceled and voided checks

  • Tax forms and tax-related documents older than 10 years

  • Items with a signature (old leases, contracts, letters)

 

Never Shred

  • Permanent records

  • Birth certificates, adoption papers, social security cards

  • Marriage or divorce decrees

  • Auto and home deeds
