Unclaimed Funds

Don’t you just love it when you find money? A penny on the sidewalk, quarter underneath a couch cushion, or a few bucks in the pocket of an old jacket can really make your day. What made my day recently was finding out that we had $70 in unclaimed funds. I just visited MissingMoney.com, picked my state, filled in my name, and there it was in all its glory.

MissingMoney.com is a database of state unclaimed property records. Common types of unclaimed property include bank accounts, safe deposit box contents, stocks, mutual funds, bonds, dividends, un-cashed checks, wages, insurance policies, CD’s, trust funds, utility deposits, escrow accounts, and more. Ours was from the healthcare provider my husband had at his last job.

MissingMoney.com is absolutely free and has been mentioned on the Today Show, Good Morning America, and CNN.com.
