While most people in the United States await their stimulus check, there is the possibility that you also have money owed to you waiting for you to claim it.
Unclaimed property comes in many different forms. It could be old savings or checking accounts, life insurance policies, dividends, stocks, deposits from utility companies or payments from your cell phone company. If the company trying to return money to you isn’t successful in finding you, they eventually turn it into your state Treasury Department. In turn, each state has an online searchable database to find and claim your property.
Here is a sample database search showing the type of companies that reported unclaimed money.
If you find unclaimed property, states will have you fill out a claim form and send in required documentation to claim your funds.
I love you dear readers so much that I went and hyperlinked the unclaimed property website for all 50 States below. Visit your State and search your name and see if there is free money waiting to be claimed. Please post your success stories in the comments and enjoy your potential windfall
