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.

I have found missing money in three states. All in the states unclaimed funds. A total just over $5000. My tips are regularly check the states unclaimed funds, and fill out paperwork properly. For me this is a fun and rewarding hobby.
I searched my family members names and helped my Grandma recover $180 from her CVS Caremark account.
My husband had over $100 last year from here. All we had to do is print off a couple simple forms to fill out, send copy of drivers license and SS card, and get those papers notarized then send in. Easy peasy. Then we got a check about 2 weeks later.
