Keep your documents safe
Some files recommended to digitizing and store securely in the Cloud are:
- Personal identification documents of each family member;
- Historic financial and tax documents;
- Property certificates (Real Estate, motor vehicles, other high-value items);
- Medical records, including those that can help rescue teams make agile decisions
- Insurance papers to help you claim reimbursement
Image and PDF formats are the most common and accessible
Some free applications to help you digitalize include:
- Storage: Google Drive (for Google users) / iCloud (for Apple users) / Dropbox, OneDrive (for Microsoft Office subscribers)
You can also scan and print paper copies from those archives and keep them secure in waterproof containers.
