New Year’s To Do List: #1 – Putting “FUN” in Unclaimed Funds!


Comments

There are billions of dollars in unclaimed funds in the US.  Well, billions minus $59 that my recent annual perusal found waiting for me from Home Depot.

Because I track like a Navajo bloodhound, in previous years I came across something for my dad, a couple pension payments for my mom, and some dividend from some railroad thingy that was my grandfather’s.

This year I found over $500 waiting for family members.  But will they get it?  Well, they didn’t get it LAST YEAR WHEN I TOLD THEM ABOUT IT!!!  But when you think about it, who has time to fill out a form to get $500 when you’re experiencing a Cute Emergency?

Give these free sites a whirl.  I hope you find some gold in them thar hills!

  • Unclaimed.org – State-by-state unclaimed property listings
