This is truly amazing.
Yes, I have heard it before but never tested the theory.
This time, I typed my first and last name into the website and it was right on the screen in front of me.
I had money, yes money, that was "unclaimed" and waiting for me.
All I had to do was fill out a few forms.
This week is National Unclaimed Property Week, and Alabama residents are missing out.
According to a report from WSFA-TV in Montgomery, over 10 million assets of unclaimed property are available in Alabama.
It really takes very little time to find out if you have unclaimed property and/or money.
The fact remains, according to Alabama state treasurer, Young Boozer, the value of the unclaimed assets is over $1 billion.
According to WSFA-TV, the state is sending out 20,000 letters to folks they believe have assets in the state vault.
That doesn't mean you will get a letter if you have unclaimed assets. It is highly possible that you could have the unclaimed money or property and not receive a notice of any kind.
Here are the websites that I used to do my searches. It only took a few seconds to find out.
https://www.usa.gov/unclaimed-money was the first site I checked out.
That led me to this site: https://www.missingmoney.com/
All you need is a first and last name to check your name, or a family member/friend.
Who knows? You just might have a valuable asset waiting to be claimed by you.
It could change lots of things in your life, and you can only find out if you check your name.
