The average American uses 749 pounds of paper per year.
What do people do with their paper statements anyway? Judging by the number of calls we get asking about shred days, they save them up to bring back to us to shred and many times they weren’t even opened. Seems like a waste of paper doesn’t it?
The credit union keeps two years of statements in PDF format in our online banking system. Signing up for E-Statements is not only an environmentally friendly thing to do, but it is also a deterrent to identity thieves who love to get their hands on statements either through the mail or in the trash.
To sign up for E-Statements, log into the digital banking system and select EDOCUMENTS and subscribe.
