You went the smart route and bought a fireproof safe which will keep all of your documents safe from all the elements. Maybe you’re stuck on what to do with it – or even what to put inside of it.
 
Below is a list of things that you should consider putting inside in order to keep your belongings safe.

     

  • Insurance policies and agent contact information. Especially with home insurance, you will want to make sure you have this handy in the case of a fire.
  •  

  • Legal documents and/or copies. These documents were meant to ensure protection so being able to access them will give you that protection.
  •  

  • Wills where you are names the executor. Having access to this information is important because once the person passes away, safe deposit boxes are sealed.
  •  

  • Passports and original birth certificates. These are used in order to establish your identity in a number of instances. Plus, they can be a pain to replace.
  •  

  • A list of family doctors, prescriptions, and pharmacy information on the off chance someone would need to get them for you or access that information.
  •  

  • Digital copy of all family photos. You can use a CD or an external hard drive. If there were to be a fire in your home, this is something that many people wish they still had with them. These are memories that you don’t want to lose.
  •  

  • Keys to your safe deposit box. If you have anything of personal value at the bank, then you will want to make sure your key is accessible and safe.
  •  

  • Any important papers for investments, bank accounts, or retirement plans. You never know when you might need to access these.
  •  

  • Outstanding debt information. Keeping an eye on this information will be very important to your credit score.
  •  

  • Original Social Security Cards. These are hard to replace and are needed to establish eligibility for things such as benefits.
  •  

  • Anything valuable such as jewelry, coins, cash, etc. They will be safe and you can access them.
  •  

  • Spare keys/titles to all vehicles. This is important information to know the location of!
     
    There are many other things to keep inside a fireproof safe, but these items are of particular importance to everyone and should find a secure home.
