Unclaimed money --- do you have some money somewhere? Find it!

Recently, I came across information about Unclaimed Money (in California). At first, I was wary, because social security number is requested to verify one's identity. I googled the information, checked the site, looked at the phone numbers, the logo, etc. and determined that this is legit.

So I searched, and found 6 under my name. By the time I added them up, I had $100 in unclaimed and uncashed checks.

Being curious, I also checked the other states where I lived -- Texas and Florida --- and also found some unclaimed property/money.

 

Does the State Have Your Money?

$58 Billion Dollars Unclaimed --- is some of it yours?

Find Unclaimed Money from the Government

 

When I posted on Facebook that I searched for and found some of my unclaimed money, some cohorts were just as trepidatious about entering their social security numbers. One went ahead, and found $250 for himself, and $477 for his daughter. That alone was worth the few minutes that he searched.

I also searched on behalf of my siblings and nephews and nieces, and found several unclaimed property (uncashed checks, stocks, etc). They all add up!

How about you?

Hi Pacita, it is surprising how many folks lose track of their money.  I shouldn't talk though, cause I've been guilty too.

Michael Dagner --- in my case, I found dividend checks (small amounts) that I didn't receive because I moved around so much. What did you find?

Minnesota publishes a list of money and who it belongs to.  Many people are surprised.
