They do that to greatly lessen the chances of your personally-identifiable information finding its way to a virtual auction block on the dark web. They’re doing it not just to protect you, but also to protect themselves and anybody in their office who might come in contact with your documents during the tax prep process from accidentally exposing you to identity theft.
AOPA’s Aviation Finance does the same. We offer our members working with us on airplane loans a highly encrypted, super secure online loan portal, to best prevent you, your family’s wealth or your business from getting hacked.
Even if the email (and PDF attachment) does get through without incident, the application process is still vulnerable to human factors. Those include the staffer assigned to your loan going on vacation, calling in sick or quitting. Any of those scenarios leaves your documents inaccessible to the rest of the team working on your application until that person returns tanned, healed or the company IT department accesses the former employee’s email. The deal could be lost by then.
Uploading all of your loan paperwork, both the personally-identifiable, highly sensitive financials and the other paperwork to the encrypted, secure loan portal is the fastest, most effective, safest and, ultimately, the most efficient way to transmit documentation. It protects you. It protects us. It protects the process.Great advice. Great rates. Helpful and responsive reps you can trust.
