Free Shredding Saturday At Navy Federal

If you have papers that need to be shredded, you might find a solution this weekend.  Navy Federal Credit Union is offering free shredding services at Navy Shred-eral Day events at select locations around the country.

This Saturday, 17 October 2015, from 9 am to 1 pm, participating Navy Federal locations will accept up to four boxes of papers to be shredded.  They do ask that all metal bits (paperclips, staples, etc.) be removed first, and they will not be accepting business or commercial materials, CDs, or any other hard materials.

What Kinds Of Papers Should Be Shredded?

Basically, you should shred anything that includes personally identifying information, or any other information that could compromise your financial or personal security.  This might include:

  • credit card offers
  • anything with your signature
  • investment records
  • pay stubs
  • cancelled or voided checks, unwanted books of checks, and those “convenience checks” sent out by banks
  • old bank statements
  • things that list your driver’s license number
  • ATM receipts
  • credit card receipts
  • old insurance Explanations of Benefits

Shredding papers with personally identifying information is one of the many steps you can take to prevent identity theft, plus it will decrease the amount of clutter in your house.  Win-Win!
