Do you have unclaimed money? There is a very good chance you do and I can help you find it. Over the years I have located unclaimed money for myself, friends & relatives; most recently in 2019. Billions of dollars in unclaimed assets are being held by state and federal government agencies. You can conduct a free search for these unclaimed assets right now and I will show you how.

Unclaimed Assets Are Most Often:
  • Insurance Policy Refunds
  • Stocks & Bonds
  • Utility Deposits
  • Bank Accounts
  • Pensions
  • Certificates of Deposit
  • Safe Deposit Box Contents
  • Paychecks/Salaries
These lost funds are commonly a closed bank account or utility deposit that the original owner did not claim. After a certain amount of time has elapsed without a claim, the asset is then forwarded by the holder to the state where it is then entered into a public database.

Millions of people in the U.S. have unclaimed money, and that also includes top celebrities like Reese Witherspoon. The video below shows a successful search for unclaimed assets belonging to the famed actress.

Next we will learn how to locate these unclaimed assets being held by state government agencies because this is where you are likely have the most success. In fact, all of the lost funds I have located were held at the state level. This includes over $8,000 in unclaimed stocks that belonged to my grandparents.

Following the state databases are links to federal agencies where you can search for unclaimed money.

State-held Unclaimed Assets Search

The most common place to locate unclaimed money is at your state treasurer office website so this is where you will want to begin you search. I have found my unclaimed money using these databases, as well as unclaimed money for relatives and friends. These websites have searchable databases where you can locate lost assets by simply searching for your name. After searching for your name, the results will show a list of addresses and this is how you can confirm you have an unclaimed asset.

Let's conduct a name search for John Doe, using Florida's database as an example. John Doe is also known as Jonathan and Jon so he will want to search for all possible first-name spelling variations as well. You can also search by just first initial and last name. For women, maiden names should also be searched as well as hyphenated last names.

Listed below are links I have collected to the unclaimed asset databases for all 50 states and Puerto Rico. Simply select the state where you currently reside to begin your search. In addition to searching your current state's database, be sure to check all states where you have resided and conducted business. In the event you do locate an unclaimed asset you are entitled to, simply follow the instructions that are provided for claiming it. Note:: Keep in mind that usually the amount of the unclaimed money isn't disclosed until the claims process begins. And even if the amount is rather small, my advice is to claim it anyway because it's quick and easy to do.

If your spouse or parents have passed away and were collecting a monthly social security benefit payment at the time of their death, you could be entitled to their final monthly social security payment. The spouse and children of the deceased can fill out Form SSA-1724 for this, found here After my mom passed away, myself and my siblings were able to collect this payment.
