Unclaimed Money from the Government
You deserve the MONEY or ASSETS that are rightfully YOURS!
Did you know that California alone gains $400 million in unclaimed assets every year!
I always felt that it would be tragic if somewhere, somehow even possibly through an ancestor that I had some kind of unclaimed property or asset unbeknownst to me or my family. Well, this just happened to me last week… I stumbled across Money that was owed to my little sister. I had been searching online for information about my Gradfather whom had passed, and fell upon the Governements unclaimed money website.
I had heard how people have come across money or property that is rightly theirs. This could be anthing from forgotten unpaid wages or pensions to property or tax refunds. As of 2015, and since the 1950’s , the state of California had taken over 28.4 million of unclaimed assets. This at the time was worth an estimated 7.2 Billion! In some cases after so much time, the state will reclaim the property. This can creaste another revenue stream for the states. Unfortunately, mainy states have become more focused and aggressive about finding the assets, and not the follow through of searching for the rightfull owners. The sad fact is that it’s up to the individual to seek out and stake their claim to their own property!
If the government owes you money and you do not collect it, then it’s unclaimed. This also applies to banks, credit unions, pensions, and other sources. The following information explains where to look for unclaimed money and how you can avoid scams related to unclaimed funds.
Currently, the government does not have one central website for finding unclaimed money by name, Social Security number, or state. To find unclaimed money from the government, start with your state. Then you can check a number of other sources, such as:
