Some insurance companies offer discounts for paperless billing. Paperless could save you money, but it will also saves you the hassle of having to file your insurance documents – especially because they are all kept online in a sole location. By using paperless billing, you get policy documents, cards, and even billing statements sent through your email. You can access everything online, usually including proof of insurance.
Paperless Helps the Environment!
A 2008 study commissioned by the PayItGreen Alliance found that by switching to electronic bills, statements and payments, the average American household could save 6.6 pounds of paper, 0.08 trees, 24 square feet of forest, 63 gallons of water, and 4.5 gallons of fuel per year. The environmental impact of going paperless may seem like just one insignificant drop in a very large bucket. But if just 20% of U.S. households committed to paperless billing and banking, the collective environmental impact is a staggering 1.8 million trees preserved per year.
