Recovered Unclaimed Money

September 17th, 2011 at 11:12 am

Today my dh got a check in the mail for $63 from the State of California. This came about after I read an article a few months back that said there are millions of dollars in unclaimed funds in the CA treasury. I checked and, sure enough, found dh on the list of people with unclaimed property. Dh's money was from an escrow he closed about 20 years ago. Apparently the title company never thought to mail the excess to the address of the home he bought. Dh completed the application for a refund, following the instructions on the website and the check followed in a few weeks. Follow this http://www.sco.ca.gov/upd.html to find out more.

    I helped my friend retrieve $1100 through our state's unclaimed money website. Good thing she keeps properly filed records.

    A couple of years ago, I received $7000 in unclaimed money. It was from an insurance policy my parents had, so I split it with my siblings. Still, a nice windfall!

    I had read about this happening, but I don't think I have ever known anyone who actually was able to find themselves on the money list! Very cool. I guess this will lead me to keep my eyes open -- I'd be happy to have some insurance of an extra $63 (or $1100, or $7000)!

    I found a coworker's name on the list. Not sure what the money was from, but they were requiring proof that had lived at a particular address (parents old home) in the early 70s. Never did get his money ($30 or so) since he couldn't prove that.

    Wow I didn't even know such lists existed. This could certainly turn out to be a nice windfall for some folks.
