Why do I need a Safe Deposit Box?

You might need a safe deposit box if you need a safe place to store items that would be difficult to replace. Important papers such as birth certificates, marriage licenses, wills, passports, stock certificates and military records as well as valuables such as heirloom jewelry, rare coins, artwork and videos are examples of items customers typically choose to store in a safe deposit box. Once you decide which items you want to store, contact the nearest Regions branch to rent a safe deposit box. Safe deposit boxes are fire and water resistant, but contents are not insured by Regions or the FDIC. You are responsible for insuring the contents.
