You know that feeling when you find $20 in an old pair of jeans? Or in a handbag collecting dust in the back of your closet? Discovering lost money, in any amount, is a joyous occasion. Today, I'm sharing a website that creates a similar story line. This site helps you find unclaimed money you never knew you lost.
I know what you're thinking. How can I possibly have money floating around that I don't know about? Well, remember when you paid a security deposit on that new apartment lease? Did you ever get it back? How about that savings account your grandfather opened for you? Or that Certificate of Deposit you received from your great aunt when you turned thirteen? Maybe you never even knew you had these funds! Other forms of unclaimed property can include uncashed payroll checks, refunds, trust distributions, insurance payments, money in safe deposit boxes, and more.
Luckily, there's an easy way to find out if you have unclaimed money. And to retrieve it if you do.
