In the good old days our physical home address was the most important item for delivery of mail and physical identity. Not sure if your mailbox is like many, but for the most part paper delivery is WAY down and expected that in the next few years many entities (Credit Card, Mortgage, Paychecks… any kind of monthly statement) will completely discontinue options for paper delivery …. this is a much greener approach, and will certainly help our environment – we know it may be uncomfortable for some, but likely inevitable!
Email address replaces Home Address – Our Collective Responsibilities
Given the above mentioned facts, with our email address now been our most likely contact … similar to our physical address in the good old days, new restrictions for our collective security are welcomed, needed, and expected.
It’s for our own collective safety that to change an email address on a delivery should be more secure!
In today’s more secure and safe environment for us to change an email address on your information we will now need to submit a signed document – ok … it’s a bit of a pain, and in the good old days when delivery was mostly to our physical address we could do it for you – but that was as they say … the good old days.
With 95% of our clients receiving all of their information completely electronically we feel like we are the norm, and accept the new responsibility but slightly more challenging changes to our electronic delivery.
Docusign Anyone ? More to come on this soon!
Just a heads up in advance, when we change our email there will be additional documents for our collective security to make the change.
We will make it super easy, but there will be an extra step.
Sorry for the hassle but again certainly for our collective security!
Have a Great ” Email is New Home Address” Day!
