forgotten savings and checking accounts
insurance refunds or claims
child support payments

Also, hundreds of thousands of people are owed money as an heir to an inheritance that they didn’t even know about!
Why is the money “unclaimed”?
For one reason or another the financial institution holding the funds has been unable to locate the rightful owners to return the money. So, literally billions of dollars sit in unclaimed accounts across the nation year after year. This money is lost and never gets found unless the owners of the unclaimed funds use a property locator service like Cash Unclaimed Money Search.
For instance, have you ever:
moved without checking to be sure every company and person you do business with knew your new address?

opened a savings account as a child or for your own child and then forgot about it?
forgot to cash a health insurance check?
forgot to cash interest or dividend checks on stocks or bonds?
Quit or been fired from a job and never gone back to get your last paycheck?
