Does the state or federal government owe you money?

You, your family members, and clients may have unclaimed money from a state or the federal government

It never ceases to amaze me which state or government owes me my own money!  The amazing part is that 95% of the time that I’ve found this money, I’m still living at the same address as stated on the unclaimed property file.

So, start the year off checking for your “found money”.

Even if you’ve lived at the same address for “a zillion years”, check the “missing money” websites for any state you’ve ever lived in.

Most of the money I’ve found is from insurance companies, health companies, electric companies and department stores – I’m perplexed as to why! I still live at the same address.

Happened this year again.   And yes, Google… I have not moved!

Every year, I also search on behalf of my relatives, friends, and clients.  Just today, I  sent 6 of them messages that a state is holding their money.

So far, no one has found more than a few hundred dollars… but that’s found money that can go to investments.  Every dollar does count!
