Unclaimed Property

Advice and reference info from members.  (Updated April 17, 2016)

Almost everyone has some small stray uncashed check somewhere. You may be approached by companies claiming to have found money for you -- for example, a private investigator has been contacting ex-EDS folks. There is no need to pay anyone.

Be sure to check state unclaimed property sites for lost shares, uncashed dividend checks, and other stray money.

Go to the MissingMoney website, affiliated with the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators and check every state or province where you have lived or worked: https://www.missingmoney.com/Main/StateSites.cfm 

Be sure to try variations on the spelling of your first and last names. For example, one member found an HP-related check that had been mailed to a misspelled street address with an incorrect zip code.
