How to find and claim missing money in your name:
I have used these sites the last two years and both times found & got "missing" money for my family from different states. You get the whole amount.
1. Unclaimed funds
Unclaimed money from bank accounts, insurance policies, rental and utility deposits, safe deposit boxes and other places could be hanging out there somewhere in your name. All you need to know is how to check and collect it without paying any fees.
Its particularly easy if you have a unique last name. Simply go to MissingMoney.com and punch in your name to do a database search of available unclaimed funds across all states. With one click of your mouse, you can cover the entire spectrum of whats available.
Please note that not every single state participates. If you live in a state that doesnt participate with this free site, theres one more option for you: Unclaimed.org. This website is a clearinghouse for the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators.
Also, if you ever had an FHA home loan, HUD may be sitting on refund money for you. Go to HUD.gov and see if youre in their refund database.
2. Former pension plan
Millions of dollars in pension benefits go unclaimed, usually after companies go out of business or close their plans. When this happens, if the company cant find you, your pension money goes to the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp., a government agency that protects retirement income. If you think you may have an unclaimed former pension plan, check the PBGCs unclaimed pensions database to see if youre on the list of people owed benefits and what to do next.

3. Old bank account
4. Check the IRS
5. Savings bonds
If you get some monies, please come back and let me know.
The way my insurance company worked for dental benefits was screwy - they'd send me a check that I was supposed to take to the dentist and a couple just fell through the cracks. I'd already paid the dentist long before, so I was glad to get the money back.
She gave me 10% both times. LOL!
and give info to friends.
It was less than $10. I already received a bequest from his estate a year or so after he died. No need to pursue this claim...
I had a number of rebates that I never received and it turned out that Florida requires the companies to put that money into the unclaimed funds account. I ended up finding over $200 in rebates I had given up on!
I found over $600 from several insurance companies. They must be really old refunds because I don't remember any claims.
All those old savings & loan accounts, unclaimed oil & gas royalties, etc. really add up to some substantial money, over the years. Might as well see if you have any coming to you, before it's gone as a result of time limitations.
Especially since it is so easy. You claim your money and it comes in the mail in no time.
