How to Edit a Bank Statement

How to Edit a Bank Statement

Step 1

Make a copy of the bank statement, setting the original back with your bank records for safe keeping.

Step 2

Cover the information that isn't pertinent to the person requesting a copy of the statement. Use a ruler to keep lines neater with the black marker, covering items such as your Social Security number, irrelevant transactions or even your address of record.

Step 3

Highlight the information that is most pertinent. This should include the account name, the transaction information and possibly the account number if it needs to be included.

Step 4

Make a color copy of the redacted bank statement. Keep the original copy for your records (you may be able to discern information through the redactions where the copy eliminates this).
