WEST CHESTER, PA — Key Financial, Inc., a Barron’s and Forbes nationally recognized wealth management firm in West Chester, PA will be holding a “Document Shred Event” on Thursday, March 23rd from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm.

The event will be held at the West Chester Office, located at 1045 Andrew Drive, Suite A. Clients of Key Financial, as well as members of the West Chester community are encouraged to bring any old tax information or documents that they would like to shred in a safe and secure manner. “Beginning of year tax planning has everyone going through files, gathering data and we have had many requests from clients asking if they could stop by and shred their old confidential documents”, explained Bernadette Hunter, Director of Client Engagement at Key Financial. “They know we utilize a secure system of document shredding, and in light of all the identity theft issues happening on a national level, we are happy to give them this opportunity. We offered this service before the pandemic, and it was a huge success.”

Most attorneys, advisors and accountants warn their clients about hanging on to confidential documents long after they are needed. Local CPA Bruce Boylston of Rothman Boylston, LLC, has high praise for events like these. “With all of our attention focused on cyber security we tend to overlook our paper. A study not too long ago showed that one in five data breaches involved paper documents. Most tax documents still reflect your social security number along with other information. Best practice is to always shred your paper documents.”

Employees of Key Financial will happily accept all paper documents without any metal bindings. Staples and paper clips are allowed but no CDs or flash drives can be accepted. All individuals taking advantage of this opportunity are limited to three file boxes of documents each.
