Year end - Annual Search for 'missing money'

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 

http://www.unclaimed.org/ 

 

Every year about this time I run my name thru this website and last year I got lucky.  With the economy being a bit 'chilly' I figure eveyone should get whats due them.  Last year I got a few hundred dollars that was due me.  No such luck this year but maybe someone one here can get a back paycheck, forgotten about bank account etc.

 

**there is NO FEE for this service, no where in the process should you have to pay to get your money**

Looks like dh has $5-10 that he is owed. Since I'm doing the leg work, I think I will get to keep it!

sweet! dh's company has a check for him for almost $100! I'll have him call his payroll office tomorrow!

We got $45 back from a medical refund a couple of years ago. Nothing waiting for me this time around. Rats.  LOL

Thanks for this!  Looks like I got $15.86 coming to me!

41.95!

thanks! I found 4 that i think might be for DH and it adds up to a good amount... but I'm not 100% positive it's him... it's not a super common name but there might be others with the same name out there...

 

sending in the paperwork at any rate & then I'll just see what happens

How do you know the amount? I found mine and filed the form online to claim (old paycheck) but it doesn't say the amount I don't think.  Either that or I'm not looking in the right place.

Doesn't work for my state. Just get an error message. I guess they're not giving up any money that they may have found.

darn.  nothing.  oh well, it would have been practically free money anyway.

I had $200 from my last paycheck at my college job one year. Was pretty sweet.

Wait... I have something here in AK! Under my maiden name... unknown amount and type. Hmm...

 

ETA: And something from WAY back in Minnesota. Craziness.

 

Merry Christmas to ME. Mama's gettin' a new cell phone! Or, really, probably just paying rent and mortgage (long story, we pay both).

Checked in my native state, and I have a whopping $0.11 due to me!
 

I was impressed that this website also includes Quebec, Alberta and BC!!!

I have nothing but my brother has more than $50. I filled out the claim form for him and he's pretty excited.  My dh has $4.

My deceased great aunt is owed about $10k but has 50 or so heirs and it would be a nightmare to disburse. I got the claim form, though.

post #16 of 35

Thank you! My DH got $30!

Depending on how long she has been deceased it could just refer back to her 'will'.  Or it could be yours since you claimed it.  These things are very strange when you go to claim them.  Good luck!

 

I'm so glad some folks are getting whats been waiting for them.!

My Alaska one got back to me... they're sending me a check for $25.

 

No word yet from Minnesota... that one said "Over $100," so I'm slightly more excited for that thumb.gif.

I always get a big fat nothing with these things!

 

For those of you getting something, rock on!

post #20 of 35

DH has $35 and I have $12 plus some stock.  In fact my entire family of birth turned up on there.
