More Pain Than Gain for Digital Statements

More pain than gain

There are some who might say digital versions of financial, utility, and other monthly statements are superior to mailed versions. Digital statements are accessible on any computer, printable on demand, and securely stored on a company website. While these might be perceived as valuable benefits, their value against the mailed version is no contest.

Accessing a statement from a company website involves recalling a password, sifting through various menu options, and downloading it onto a personal computer. Retrieving that same statement in the mail involves pulling an envelope out of a box and opening it.

Keeping a copy of a mailed document requires dropping it in a filing cabinet or other storage area. Retaining a copy from a digital source requires printing out a copy before storage.

Storing mailed documents in a filing cabinet can be retained for as long as an individual likes. A company website doesn’t keep statements available indefinitely, and will often purge older documents after a certain length of time.

With the many positive benefits mailed statements have over digital versions, the advantages speak for themselves.
