I didn’t think I’d find anything for myself or family when I did a search, but low and behold I found that there was unclaimed money for myself of $30 when I worked for Burger King when I was a kid. How bout that!!
Governments keep a record of unclaimed money it is holding that belongs to individuals. Hard to believe, but the U.S. government wants to return this money to their rightful owners. Unclaimed money could include deposits, derivatives, salaries, stocks, bonds, wills, estate monies, and any other money or property that is not claimed by the legal owner.
State law requires local governments to turn over unclaimed money to the state after a specified period of time. The state has no time limit for filing claims. It holds unclaimed money in trust for the rightful owners forever. Visit the state’s The National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrator’s web site for additional information.
