There are many types of loss we experience in our lifetime. But a lost life insurance policy, forgotten bank account, safety deposit box, or land deed, are just a few of the losses one can not afford to lose. Did you know that one out of every 600 people are the beneficiaries of unclaimed life insurance policies, and they are due nearly $1 billion in unclaimed benefits? You could have money waiting for you to claim. There are a lot of websites out there claiming to be able to find this lost fortune for you — for a small fee. But, you don't need a professional service, you can do it yourself.

Types of Unclaimed Property and Money

There are all types of ways you could be owed money that you forgot or don't know about:

  • Utility deposits, credit balances, store refunds
  • Un-cashed dividend, payroll or cashier's checks
  • Stock certificates, bonds, or mutual fund accounts
  • Life insurance policy
  • Undistributed wages
  • Checking and/or savings accounts
  • Gift certificates
  • Traveler's checks
  • Safe deposit boxes
  • Royalty payments
  • Court payments

Why Does Property and Money Go Unclaimed?

Why do people actually not claim money or property owed to them? Here is a list of reasons:

  • They moved 
  • They changed job status due to layoff, retirement or reassignment
  • Their bank account has been inactive for more than three years
  • They may have stopped making payments on an insurance policy
  • There are un-cashed checks older than three years
  • They regularly throw away mail without reading it 
  • An estate was settled for a deceased relative
