What Documents Should I Shred?

Shred junk mail and old papers that include your birth date, account numbers, signature, passwords. Social Security and PIN numbers - but don't shred your Social Security card.

Destroy deposit slips and credit card receipts right after you get your monthly statement. Shred used airline tickets, old medical bills, pre-approved credit card applications, expired ID's such as driver's licenses and passports and canceled checks you don't need for tax purposes.
