As the title says, this is for people in the US only. You can go on this site, and click on your state or any state you have been active in. That takes you to the official State Treasury site of your state.
Each treasury has a web platform where businesses report tangible or intangible property that a business has tried to deliver to you and failed (for at least 3 years).

It could be cash, physical property, money from some bank for whatever reason etc. All you need to search is your name. If your name is common, you can narrow it with a zip code.
If you find something in your name, you can provide more information on your state treasury's site. They send you an email about an hour after, with more details, like the dollar amount. Along with a form to fill out to claim it.

I found one small check a business was trying to deliver to a wrong address they had for me.

Note:
I am not affiliated with this site, it is run by the National Association of State Treasurers.

This is legit. I used it to recover funds from an old commission check, and my mom used it to recover funds from an old bank account she'd forgotten about. .

I didn't find anything. I knew about this for years. Although, the website must have changed since the last time I looked years ago.

Thanks, I had zero idea, I have 4 claims over 3 states totaling 100, one of them being 1 penny from Pay Pal!
If you’d invest it wisely, in 59258 light years you’d be a millionaire !

I just performed a quick check and this is what showed up for me! This would be a nice little sum to claim for free.

Badass!! I will move forward with the claim process and report back once I receive it.

Thank you so much for sharing this - incredibly insightful and fun little experiment!

Yea, the wife had some funds but couldn't find the documents to file a claim. They make it pretty hard to confirm the property when it's an address from 15 years ago.

LOL I just checked and JP Morgan Chase owes me $0.39 cashiers check. :rofl:

I only want it if its gonna be in a jumbo style lottery check format. LOL

Now, if you and Private Witt could just pool resources. With your 39c from Chase and his shiny penny from PayPal. Just imagine the business possibilities, with all that funding.

I want in for that 2.5% of this venture and once we consolidate my penny with his 39 cents we need to rope the big dog in who got 14k plus.

Mine had an address from years ago, which I no longer live at, but I have one expired driver's license with that address. So maybe if she can find an old ID from that time, she can probably attach it.
