Keep a home file to maximize the efficiency of your financial records. Items should include:

  • Copies of insurance policies
  • Information on home mortgages, land, and other property
  • Information on motor vehicles and driver’s licenses
  • Copies of birth, marriage, death, divorce, and citizenship papers
  • Copy of will, last instructions, and safe deposit box keys
  • Tax records for the last six years
  • Records of pension plans, education, health records, and employment
  • Current household inventory. List everything you own, how much it costs, and approximately how old it is. Add pictures of room/major items and keep receipts
  • Copies of all warranties and guarantees

Keep a safe deposit box for financial records that are difficult, costly, or impossible to replace. Items should include:

  • Birth, death, marriage, divorce, adoption, and citizenship papers
  • Deeds to property
  • Titles to motor vehicles
  • Stock and bond certificates
  • U.S. savings bonds
