5 Reasons to Switch to eStatements

Every month statements are sent in the mail that end up cluttering desks and countertops. Credit card companies, financial institutions and lenders are among those who mail these to you every month in order to recover payments and to provide you with a report on the status of your accounts. Not only can they be stressful to have around, but they also end up everywhere in your home. Why not simplify your life by going digital? It’s the fast, safe and easy way to get organized and stay on top of your finances. Here are a few reasons why Hughes makes it easy to switch over to eStatements.

Declutter – Reduce the amount of paper you receive every month and stay organized. No more sifting through bins and boxes of old paperwork, or misplacing documents. You will have access to the past 18 months of records electronically simply by logging in to online banking.
