Here’s How to Find Out If You Have Unclaimed Money Just Lying Around
Who doesn't love a treasure hunt? You can take part in one online courtesy of the State Treasurer's Office. The Great Iowa Treasure Hunt is a website that allows you to search and check if you have any unclaimed money. What is 'unclaimed' money you ask? It can be money sitting in a dormant account, utility refunds, uncashed checks, unclaimed wages and more. There is no timetable to claim your money, all you have to do is check and see if you have any!
You can search by name, or by property address to find your cash. I searched my name and came up with nothing. I then searched my wife's name and found out that she has a whopping $20 coming her way! The directions on how to claim the money are also listed on the website. So log on and find out if you have a treasure chest of money just waiting for you!
