How to Find and Claim Your Unclaimed Property

Have you ever wondered how to find out if you have some money or unclaimed property somewhere?  This information will help you get a good start on claiming that refund or rebate that you may have forgotten about!

You may not even know that you are entitled to receive some money or property.  So if you are curious – here is how to have some fun looking for that hidden wealth that you or your relatives may have waiting for you to claim.

First:  Make a list of the Sates you have lived in.  Then go to their links and begin your search.

Here is a List of States on MissingMoney.com and Additional Information:

The states and provinces listed below are connected to the MissingMoney.com national database where you can make a search for your unclaimed property.  I have also listed other states web addresses where you can also search for unclaimed property.

Alabama, Alaska, Alberta Canada, Arizona, Colorado, District of Columbia, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin

A question of interest: 

Is there a time limit or fee for claiming the items from the state?
The answer is No!

States and Provinces act as the custodians of your property until you claim it from them.  In most cases States do not charge a fee to you when you claim unclaimed property.  Some people and companies, known as heir finders or locators will try to charge up to 50% for helping you claim your funds.  There is really no need to pay these service providers since you can find your money for free by using MissingMoney.com and working directly with the U.S. States and Canadian Provinces.

Please Note:  If you click on the various state’s hyperlinks you will get additional interesting information about that State!  The link next to it will take you to the state’s Unclaimed Property Page.
