We all look forward to a big trip and as you plan for your next adventure take some time to get your documents in order.
Wills and Power of Attorney
While most people might have a will you should also consider a good Medical Power of Attorney. If you are traveling and something happens and you have to go for medical treatment this document will share your wishes with the medical staff treating you.
Life Insurance Policies
While we don’t think about something terrible happening while we travel, now is a good time to make sure your life insurance policies are current. If you don’t have one, you can get term life insurance quickly and easily to help protect your family in case of a tragedy.
Passports and Drivers License
When you are visiting new places, your ID is your lifeblood as it is required to fly when visiting foreign countries. You don’t want to lose this, but accidents and thefts happen. So it is always a good idea to have a digital copy of these documents just in case.
Secure Digital Safety Deposit Box
Keep your important documents in a place where you or your family and friends can find them in case of an emergency. Consider using the TriggerBox, it is a secure alternative to emailing information or sharing important files via unsecured services like DropBox.
The TriggerBox allows you to securely upload and deliver digital documents to friends, family or colleagues utilizing unique triggers with enhanced cloud security.
If you want to access your identification while you are traveling you could store them securely in the cloud so you can access them anywhere, anytime. Simply get a digital copy of your ID and upload it to a new storage box on their secure cloud storage platform.
For files that your family or trusted friends need access to in case of an emergency you can scan digital copies and them upload them to a new Key Trigger box. They will be given instructions on how to use their digital key and you can let them know when to use it. After all the key holders have entered their digital key, the recipients of the box contents will be notified and they can securely retrieve them.
