Claim Lost Funds

Billions of dollars are lost in the United States every year. This is money from old bank accounts that haven't been used in years, utility security deposits, stock holdings, refunds from merchants that couldn't be issued because of wrong addresses, and other places where the legitimate owner can't be contacted. You may have moved or changed your name and the funds are lost. New York State has more unclaimed money than any other state. You can check and claim lost funds anywhere in the world.

Quick Tip

If you are a small business owner, you need to check your business name as well.

Claim Lost Funds: Final Thoughts

Government websites should be safe. It is worth checking to see if you are owed anything. When I checked a couple of years ago, I found out that I was due $30 from PayPal for "AMTS DUE FOR UNDELIVERED GOODS/ SERVICES". Hopefully, you can find some as well.
