Did you know that state and government agencies are holding more than 32 billion dollars in unclaimed assets from 117 million accounts? The possibility that there might be free money lying somewhere in the state treasuries around the U.S. seem almost too good to be true.
Typically, a person is eligible for unclaimed funds if the unclaimed funds are listed in the individual’s name. Plus, people are eligible to collect free unclaimed money if they can prove that they are the surviving relative of someone who has passed away and have been listed as an individual with unclaimed funds. There may be paperwork involved in processing a claim; an individual may have to prove their identity, and in some instances, a death certificate of the individual that has passed away will be required in order to prove one’s right to the unclaimed funds. Further, proof of residency may be required as well.
It only takes a few minutes to check and you can start by reading the attached story by David Bach . If you come across some unclaimed money, let me know. I had close to 50 dollars from a bank account I thought I closed years ago.
