How to Digitally Archive Your Home 

By Coletta Teske

You never know when disaster might strike. Within minutes, cherished or valuable goods could be ruined. Keeping an archive of your belongings will accelerate the process of replacing damaged property. It will also help you make better decisions about the insurance coverage you need before a disaster strikes. Follow these three simple steps to archive your home:

  • Make a list of your possessions. Some people prefer a low-tech approach to list-making—index cards or a notebook, for example—while others are comfortable with spreadsheets on a CD or USB drive. The method doesn’t matter, as long as the list is thorough, well-organized, and kept in a safe place. You should also remember to adjust your files periodically, deleting items you’ve gotten rid of and adding any new purchases.
  • Photograph your living space and possessions. Use a digital camera or a smartphone to capture rare, important, and expensive items, both in close-up shots and in wider pictures that show their position in the room. You should also photograph each wall, as well as closets and drawers. And be sure to label your photographs clearly, so you can correctly identify which numbers or details belong to which item.
  • Store digital photos and inventory in a safe place. Once you’re finished, find a safe place to store your records. Make a copy of everything and store it away from your home. For hard copies or a USB drive or CD, it’s often best to use a bank’s safe deposit box. For digital archives, Internet-based providers offer digital storage, online backups, or cloud technology to easily access or change your records.

LifeLock

WHAT you should know about identity theft. WHY you should care.

IIE is excited to announce a money-saving partnership with industry leading identity theft protection company LifeLock. Here’s why it’s important to you.

Identity theft is a lot more than a stolen credit card number.

A lot of people think their credit card company gives them identity theft protection. Sure, they protect you against fraud with your card, but identity theft is a lot more than that.

LifeLock watches out for you in ways your credit card company alone simply can’t.

What if a criminal gets a car loan in your name? Or even a mortgage? That can be more dangerous than a stolen credit card number and a spree at the mall. When the patented LifeLock Identity Alert® system detects a threat, you’ll be notified by text, phone or email, helping stop the fraud before damage can be done.†

Our partnership with LifeLock includes special savings for you.

So get started, get protected and save. Your LifeLock membership also includes Lost Wallet Protection, 24/7 member services, a $1 Million Service Guarantee‡ and more. It takes just minutes to enroll and your protection begins immediately.

Get Protection

LifeLock Provides 3 Layers of Protection

  1. Go ahead, live freely knowing we’re searching over a trillion data points looking for potential threats to your identity.
  2. When we find something suspicious, we’ll let you know through our patented LifeLock Identity Alert® system†
