Free Money!!!!

December 21st, 2015 at 04:28 pm

This website may put some cash in your pocket, or in the pockets of people you know.

http://www.unclaimed.org

This is an omnibus website for unclaimed funds left in old savings accounts, insurance rebates, IRS overpayments, etc.

You choose your state, then you can do the search in the state database for your state. Do the state search, not the 'missing money' one, it's much more complete. It's fun sometimes to go and see who you know who might be owed some money. It's a fun gift to be able to tell them they might have $100 coming from an old checking account. It's completely free! I do this maybe twice a year and have found several thousand dollars for others over the years. Give it a look.

    My state's unclaimed property office turned out to be really helpful in cashing out a savings bond when it couldn't be done otherwise. My neighbor died and SB's were found for all her nephews, who happened to have double surnames. On one, the name was recorded with only half the surname, a mistake. All the explanation and ID in the world couldn't get the bond cashed by the young man who was the intended recipient. Some years after the death, the bond was turned over to the state as unclaimed property. At that point, the executor was able to apply for the money and give it to the nephew.

    Great story Joan! Sometimes you do have the sense that you tax dollars are actually at work.
