K.I.S.S. Program Returns: Keeping Identities of Seniors Safe



The Columbia County K.I.S.S. Program will once again be available to seniors in every town in Columbia County.  The K.I.S.S. Program, founded by Columbia County Clerk Holly Tanner, stands for Keeping the Identities of Seniors Safe.  It was designed to protect the identities of our seniors while assisting them in the shredding of their sensitive materials. Seniors are encouraged to contact their local Town Hall for hours of operation and more information on the program.  Justin Weaver, Columbia County Clerk's Records Services Manager, is overseeing the program and can also be contacted with any questions at 518-822-0143.

 The KISS Program will be available:

DATE: 3/19/2018 - 3/30/2018
TIME: Monday - Friday 8:30am - 5:00pm  
LOCATION: Hudson City Hall, 520 Warren St., Hudson, NY 12534

The program is offered quarterly as a service to assist local Seniors with the secure and safe destruction of documents that contain personal information. Old bank statements, credit card receipts, legal documents, and tax forms are just a selection of the types of documents that need to be made unreadable with a shredding service. A full list of suggested documents is below. Seniors can rest assured that their documents will be secure from the moment they are taken to the town hall, and that the company doing the shredding is a trusted, bonded company. 

What Documents Should I Consider Shredding:

Bank Statements – Copies of Birth Certificates – Pay Stubs – Canceled Checks –Credit Card Statements – expired ID cards and Passports – Legal Documents –Insurance Documents –Tax Forms – Medical Records – Utility Bills – Anything with your account numbers, Passwords, PINS, signature, Social Security information or Date of Birth.
