Back-up paperwork
« on: November 29, 2009, 07:41:52 PM »
I'm looking for some suggestions of documents that should be copied and kept in a safe place.

So far I've got:
-Mortgage papers

-Title for vehicle(s)

What else?

social security card
draft registration ( if you have a physical copy, I dont since I registered on line)
bills (electric, h20 etc)
bank account info
drivers license
passport
registration on any weapons that need to be registered
and also I would recommend serial numbers on every firearm you own( a guy I used to know had all his guns stolen when someone broke in and the only proof he had was the SNs)
concealed carry license

all that comes to mind at the moment but I am sure there are many other things that would be useful

I keep copies of ALL of my medical records on SD.  This includes labwork, imaging studies, and EKG.  Also includes operative reports.

Why????


Because when I need to bail, systems are down (think katrina).  When I am in a new location (state or region), the current doc will not have access to compare records (is that new on his EKG or has he had it and it's already been worked up).

I have found this also works when I had to see a specialist (local) but the referring doc had not sent records for review.  I was able to pull everything up on the specialist's computer and he was able to make recommendations then versus having to schedule another visit.

I also have this for my wife and kids (you'd be amazed how often immunization records are asked for........)

Yep.......When i get radiology (x-ray, Cat scan, Doppler, MRI, etc), I always ask for a CD which I then download onto my home computer.  The images themselves are NOT stored on the card (too much memory), just the radiologist's report

All other reports and info get scanned into my computer.  As I get older, I'm finding I need a bigger card (more storage)  :-\

My wife has her own and my kids each have their own SD card.  These are NOT security-coded (if I or they are unconscious, won't do me or them much good).  However, I have white-out ALL identifying data except the first name.

In my go-bag is an 8g USB stick with ALL of the data, including radiology images. This is security-coded.
