Unclaimed Moola

This is another site I check out from time to time - it's the Unclaimed Property site at the California State Controller's Office. You simply do a search of your own name, or anyone else you know, and the databank checks to see if you have any money or property that you may have forgotten about - this includes insurance refunds, paychecks, forgotten safety deposit boxes, or even real property.

I also check out my family's names and friends - I found a lost account for my dad dating back to the 1940s, and a forgotten paycheck for a friend.

It's fun, it's free, and requires just a little paperwork for whomever wants to make a claim. To search other states, you can try this link.
