When an emergency happens, you don’t have time to gather all your important documents. The only thing on your mind is getting your family and yourself to a safe location and wait until the natural disaster passes. So it is important to make copies of your important documents before the disaster strikes. When you have back-ups of the documents, you will have them when you need them even if you lose the original documents.
Types of documents you should get copies for:
- Medical records
- Social Security cards
- Birth certificates
- Driver’s license
- Mortgage documents
- Property deeds
Always keep a copy of the documents offsite, such as leaving them with a friend or in a safe deposit box at the bank. You can also store documents in electronic format in cloud storage so you can instantly access them after emergencies.
