Since Florida Estate Planning Documents distribute the wealth you have accumulated over your life and provide your wishes in the event you become incapacitated, estate planning documents are some of the most important documents you will ever sign. Knowing where to keep these documents is imperative to ensuring the original copies are never damaged, lost, or forgotten over the years.
A couple of recommendations on where to keep your estate planning documents are a safety deposit box or a home safe. A safety deposit box is probably the most secure place to keep any documents and you can rest assured that the documents are protected from theft, fire, damage, tampering or loss. Banks provide top of the line security for those who seek the ultimate safe location for their estate planning documents.
In addition, storing your estate planning documents in a home safe that is waterproof and fireproof is a good alternative to a safety deposit box. However, storing the documents at home may not provide the same level of security as a bank safety deposit box because safes are always prone to thievery in the event your home is broken into.
