Do I have to provide FNPVault with an inventory list of what I store?
No. We do not require an inventory nor ask for one. However, it’s a good idea for you to provide a list of your private vault deposit box contents to a trusted individual or beneficiary. And you may disclose this to your insurer if you wish to insure your box contents. FNPV provides $5,000 of general insurance on your private vault deposit box with your sign-up and payment. Additional insurance is available. Please ask your representative to help you get more insurance for your valuables.
Who is granted access to my private vault deposit box?
Only you, the account holder that has set up the account and established a finger scan and personal pin code, has the right to access the private vault room. Your private vault deposit box is then accessible with the only key to the box, that is given to you at the time of rental registration. You may set up a second account identification for an additional fee.
What is the minimum private vault deposit box rental period?
A standard minimum rental period of 12 months applies, but special arrangements can be made for shorter rental periods, subject to availability.
What if I need a larger private vault deposit box later?
You would just pay the difference for the larger private vault deposit box, for the remaining term of your lease.
What if FNPVault is served with a court order or subpoena demanding access to my private vault deposit box?
Your personal private vault deposit box could not be accessed immediately unless a court order or subpoena specifies the exact private vault deposit box number to be accessed. Remember, FNPVault does not require you to provide identification, social security number, or employment information and so cannot be asked to confirm this information. Under most circumstances, you would have 24 hours’ notice of court papers being served.
Will I be able to access my private vault deposit box anytime day or night?
FNPVault is open Monday through Friday (except national holidays) from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Access at other times can be arranged in advance and may incur additional Access Charges.

What should I put in my Private Vault?
A good rule of thumb to keep in mind is the contents should include stuff you really need to keep safe but will not likely need on a moment's notice. Also, think about the original documents you need to keep that are a hassle to replace, like birth certificates, marriage licenses, deeds, etc.
If you carry a lot of property insurance, you may want to keep proof of ownership of that property, video inventories, receipts, contracts, stocks, bonds, CD's, collectibles. Rare and precious jewelry may belong in your Private Vault also.
Certainly, anything that is irreplaceable should be considered. We suggest you keep an inventory of contents with your Executor's Letter.

Our regular hours are Monday through Friday, 10:00 AM until 6:00 PM. Please call 470-363-3000 to set an appointment to visit our facility, take a tour and complete the paperwork. After hours appointments are available upon request and availability.
