Have you ever heard of MissingMoney.com? Established in 1999, MissingMoney.com is a national database that enables you to perform searches for lost assets required by law to be turned over to the states – like money due from past employers, utility companies, stocks, mutual funds etc. What does this mean in plain English… you can search for money owed to YOU!
Steps to Search for YOUR Missing Money:
*Click here, enter your name and state and click on “go.”
*If you find a match, you must complete a claim form. Most states and provinces require a specific form to be completed which asks pertinent information about the property and proof of ownership, such as copies of checkbook, passbook, bonds, etc.
*Follow the instructions to complete the specified form and supply any necessary documentation and identification.
*The claim form and ID are then mailed to the state for review. The state will respond to you directly after they have reviewed your submission and verified that you are the rightful owner.
*Most states send you an acknowledgment letter after receiving your claim. Claims processing time frames vary between states and provinces and property to property based upon claim activity. Click here to view the list of participating states in MissingMoney.
Is this for real? Sure is! Check out these previous reader success stories!
I just checked last week and had $1300 from a state I haven’t lived in since 2006! i have checked occasionally over the years, but it just recently showed up. So be sure and check every state you’ve lived in because you never know!
I received $63 in the mail from money that was owed to me. The process takes 9-12 weeks. Worth it!
I did this last time Collin posted and I got back $300 from an uncollected paycheck and $20 from a hospital overpayment from a long time ago. So awesome!!
Last time you posted this, I searched for a bunch of family members when my name came up with nothing. My sister and her husband had a total of 4 different unclaimed cash entries. I told her about it and she later sent me a picture of some checks she had just received in the mail totaling almost $1000!
I checked the nys comptroller’s the last time you posted . Thought I might have maybe $25 from an old disability insurance check , from 30 years ago. I lived in an apt so it was 126D they had typed in 126O . Anyhow imagine my surprise when I received a check for just over $800 when I needed it most. Thank you Colin!
