Even though lost cash and found money may sound very different from one another, the US treasury sees them as one in the same. You might think of lost cash as someone dropping a twenty dollar bill on the ground accidentally, or maybe even being money or funds that were stolen from you or unfairly taken in some other way. This might lead you to think of found money as someone coming along and picking up that bill sometime later or maybe even like stumbling upon a hidden treasure chest. Yet the US treasury sees lost cash and found money as something that the average US citizen needs to get a handle on and learn all about.

Lost fund costs are increasing into the billions of dollars and treasurers around the nation are at odds on how to stop the problem. Many people who speak of these lost fund costs liken the wave of money to an ocean tide. Some months hardly any checks flow in. On other months, particularly around tax time, checks and funds from around the country flow into state and federal treasury offices. These checks represent the hard-earned wages of average Americans – lost paychecks, abandoned bank accounts, misplaced 401K accounts. Yet with the public largely unaware of the problem, and with millions of dollars flowing into state and federal coffers annually, a solution must be made and it needs to be made soon if the country hopes to keep these lost fund costs below the national average.
