Cha-ching! You might have missing money!💸
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, 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 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 found $500 and $10k for some of my customers back when I waitressed! I got a “Finder’s fee” from both of them!
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!!
Yes it is totally legit. I had $1200 from an old insurance claim.
I checked the New York 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 apartment 126D; they had typed in 126O. Imagine my surprise when I received a check for just over $800 when I needed it most. Thank you Collin!
