You may have money sitting around that belongs to you and not even know it!

The last thing we want is for that cash to go back to Uncle Sam, so do a quick search at MissingMoney.com.

This site is backed by the NJ Treasury Department and is a database of governmental unclaimed property records. This includes:

  • Bank accounts and safe deposit box contents
  • Stocks, mutual funds, bonds, and dividends
  • Uncashed checks and wages
  • Insurance policies, CD's, trust funds
  • Utility deposits, escrow accounts

I did a search and found that there are the contents of my late grandfather's safe deposit box just being stored by the State. And yes, it includes money. 

It's worth a quick (and safe) search. You never know, you could be calling your boss tomorrow and telling them to shove it because you found a mystery fortune. We can all dream. Here's hoping you find what you find, well, what you weren't looking for!
