Paper Purge

What to Keep, What to Trash

Are you buried under documents like canceled checks, old credit card statements, medical documents and receipts? Purge them.

If you have a business, you may need to maintain business documents and tax records for a certain period of time. Check with your tax advisor.

But for most people, there’s no need to store boxes full of old paperwork. Here are some tips on what to keep and how long to keep them.

Free shredding

Any documents containing private information — bank account numbers or Social Security numbers, for example — should be shredded.

We want to help you keep your private information private, so Liberty Bank has organized several shred events.
