Finding and Claiming Unclaimed Funds and Property
|November 21, 2011||Posted by admin under Unclaimed Money||
The Federal government and state treasuries throughout the country are currently holding billions of dollars in unclaimed funds and property. This is a fact and it’s not hype whatsoever. There are millions of dollars of unclaimed funds that people don’t ever claim.
One of the biggest reasons of abandoned funds is from gift cards that never get used. This is most likely from people losing them or misplacing them and they get lost. Large retailers report this problem every year. They want them used because when people come in stores they buy even more things so they want them being used up.
But how do you go about finding unclaimed funds and property and claiming what is yours? It’s really not hard but you want to be thorough about it. Using state websites is a good idea to claim unclaimed funds belonging to you or a member in your family. You want to check this on a regular basis too because they do get updated continually.
There are some services that tend to be more comprehensive in there search for unclaimed property and funds. So instead of going from state website to state website and searching state by state a service can do it nationally all at once – a real time saver when looking for missing funds. The fee is small and well worth it when looking. You can check to see if you have unnamed funds for yourself, and others in your family as well. This makes checking for your Mom and Dad really interesting because you may turn up a lot of missing money from longer lived life then someone who’s younger.
