Credit Karma's Search for Unclaimed Money

If you have a CK account they recently added a new feature - Search for Unclaimed Money. While logged in its under Resources on the menu on the top, you search by name & state, and is fast & easy. I did it this morning while downing coffee. Took me a few minutes because I've been around the block - born in WV, grew up in OH, went to college in NY, and have lived in CO, NV, CA, HI before moving to AZ in 2005. It found two unclaimed funds in Las Vegas, 1 from American Family Insurance which is strange as they're still my insurance company and should know where to find me. The other was from PayPal, probably one of those class action lawsuit settlements.

 

Hey, free money is free $$$$, worth the few minutes time.

I found that myself last week. I apparently have a small check from the state of Virginia ($1 - $50) from my previous residence waiting for me in the state treasury department. I went ahead and filed the request with them, so I should hear sometime soon (they say to give them up to 12 weeks to process). If one decides to give it a try, be aware that proof of identity and residence will be required.

Back in the garden until Sept. 2017 unless I get an offer I can't possibly refuse...
