Have you searched your name for missing money?

No matter how many times I search mine, there is none for me.

What about you?

  • Never have searched, but I feel quite sure I would have better luck digging for loose coins that mmight have fallen down between the cushions and the arms of my recliners.

  • Yes. I used any kind of search engine I could, searching for my Natural Mother.
    She was on the list for unclaimed assets. Before we even met I was able to get word to her through her kept children that she had a claim to the money. :D

  • I search every 5 years or so. Have recovered several hundred dollars. The only complication is that they usually need some kind of documentation that proves that you lived at the address they have listed on your money. We have moved a few times and finding utility bills or other documentation was not easy. I tend to save our paperwork, but have been getting rid of things for a while.
    My suggestion to others is to keep at least one utility bill from each address (for each person listed on the account) for things like this.

  • HOly crap. DH has a claim in there for $482. I'm going to have to call the comptroller's office to find out what they need as far as documentation. They have the address of the relo company we went through when we moved here.

  • Thanks Staci! I have over $100 bucks and either my Dad or brother has a claim too! Woo hoo!

  • GREAT NEWS! I called the state # and they processed the claim over the phone and will be sending out a check next week! I had to go dig in the attic for closing documents from a decade ago, but it paid off! Yay! Thanks for the reminder Staci!

  • No. Some agencies use that as a ploy to find out your information and where you are at. That's how all your private information winds up on the web....
