Mississippi unclaimed property, which was held by another state or a company, is kept in protective custody if they could not be paid to the rightful owner. The owners last recorded state address is always taken into consideration with reference to Mississippi's unclaimed money.
Each year billions of dollars in dormant or lost accounts go without ever being found when governments, companies and banks lose track of the true owner of the money. This could be due to a host of reasons like marriage break up, misspelled names, businesses going bankrupt, banks getting dissolved, unexpected migration or relocation of jobs, address changes without prior notification, death, post office errors etc. If you know anyone who has ever moved or died, the state of Mississippi is probably holding unclaimed funds in their name.
Make sure you check with every state in which you have ever lived (unclaimed property is generally turned over to the state of your last address as reflected in the records of the business holding your found money, stock, etc.).
Do not assume that the business has your last known address. If the business holding your property doesn't have a valid address for you, the property is supposed to be sent to the state where the business was incorporated. Many large corporations are from: Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Mississippi, California or other areas.
