A safe deposit box, also known as a safety deposit box, is an individually protected container, typically made of metal, that is kept in the safe or vault of a bank or credit union that is federally insured. Important papers, valuables, and sensitive mementos are stored in safe deposit boxes for protection. Customers depend on the building’s and the vault’s security to keep their belongings safe. Fires, floods, hurricanes, and tornadoes are just a few of the natural disasters that safe deposit boxes are made to survive.

Never keep the sole copy of a crucial document in a safe deposit box. For those who are hesitant to store items online, safe deposit boxes might be very helpful. Having a co-lessor for a safe deposit box is a good idea.

The bank issues us a key to use in conjunction with a second “guard key” kept by a bank employee when we rent a safe deposit box. We will scan our finger or hand if our bank has a keyless system instead. In either case, each time we go to the bank to open the box, we will need to present some form of identification—and our key, if it’s not a keyless system.

A person has the option of leasing a box only in their own name or with additional signatories. The rights to the contents of a safe deposit box are shared equally by the co-lessors.
