Safe deposit boxes provide safe places away from your home or office to store valuables. When renting a safe deposit box, there are two considerations to make: the size of the box and the accessability to its contents.
What to keep in your safe deposit box
Safe deposit boxes are the best places to keep items that are valuable. This includes jewelry, cash, stamp and coin collections and negotiable instruments like stock certificates and bonds. They are also good places to keep items that are not replaceable or that have sentimental value. A household inventory (videotaped or written), appraisals, listings of insurance policies, and credit card numbers should also be kept in a safe deposit box.
What not to keep in your safe deposit box
It is important to remember that only you can open your safe deposit box without a court order. Items that others may need to obtain if you are not present should not be kept in your box.
Original wills, powers of attorney, living trust documents, and other trust documents should not be in your safe deposit box. Insurance policies should usually be available and not kept in the box.
