3 Items You Should Always Keep in a Safe or Vault at Home , Barnesville, Ohio

Although some people think of safes and vaults as relics from a past where people kept their savings in their homes instead of in banks, they are still highly practical for a variety of purposes. While you might not need to store stacks of cash in them, there are plenty of other critical, sometimes-irreplaceable items that you'd do well to put away in a fireproof safe or vault. Here are a few of the most important possessions that should always be kept in a safe or vault. 

3 Possessions That Should Always Be Kept in Safes & Vaults

1. Passports

Passports serve multiple purposes, including allowing you to travel internationally and serving as an official proof of identification. Replacing them is an extremely costly, difficult, and long-winded process. It's best to keep these crucial books in a safe or vault. 

2. Jewelry

safes and vaultsWhile few people today keep substantial amounts of cash at their home, women and men alike still have expensive jewelry. The troubling fact is that many of them barely make an effort to protect these valuables at all, leaving them on nightstands or other countertops in the home. The savviest way to protect significant investments in fine jewelry is by stashing them in a fireproof safe. 

3. Social Security Cards

Another form of identification that the government may require you to present when applying for federal aid or other services, social security cards are not easy to replace. You may know your number by heart, but in some instances remembering it isn't enough; you need to present your official card. Keeping it in your wallet is far too risky, but safes and vaults are perfect spots for social security cards.
