Check the government database of unclaimed property records to see if you are owed missing money or lost merchandise.
Your unclaimed property could be just waiting to be returned to you, as it’s absolutely free to check and reclaim your lost treasures.
Each year, millions of dollars in unclaimed property is turned over to state and provincial governments when the rightful owners can not be contacted for any given reason.
For instance, you may have moved without providing a forwarding address, overlooked paying a safe deposit box rental, or have never received a utility deposit refund.
Depending on state laws, businesses are usually required to turn over any unclaimed property after a certain amount of inactivity on your part.
This unclaimed property is turned over to your state treasurer’s office so that they can return the lost property to the rightful owners.
Unclaimed property includes bank accounts, safe deposit box contents, stocks, mutual funds, bonds, dividends, uncashed checks, employment wages, insurance policies, CDs, trust funds, utility deposits, escrow accounts, and any other sort of unclaimed property.
The best thing is that it’s yours to claim for free, with absolutely no fees to claim or collect your lost property.
