I decided to google the state controller's office...wade through a few websites...did the search.  I am eligibale for less than a $1 from Cap 1 and less than $50 from the county.  Probably will pass on the less than a dollar from Cap 1, but putting in a claim for the other moneies.  Smiley Happy


I'm not sure about your state's process, but where I live you can submit all of your claims at once.  So, while I had one for $9, that wouldn't have been worth my time, but with all of my claims together, I threw it in.

Re: I found $1400 in unclaimed funds!

For that state, it's one form per claim, submitted with all proofs (Identity and relationship with company).

 

I found two for me - one under current name and one under former name.  So definitley two papertrails.  And one for DH.  So three papertrails.  And I am hoping we have proof of addresses going back more than 10 years!  Smiley Happy

 

Maybe they can all be mailed in the same envelope.  Still, any additional funds will be nice.  I am glad you had posted this.  It's been awhile since I have looked.

Re: I found $1400 in unclaimed funds!

I lucked out because I only had two addresses: my current address and our home that we moved from 11 years ago.  For that, I was able to order an old W-2 from my work for 10 cents.  It was worth it because the funds were over $100 for that claim. 

 

I did find about $100 from my deceased uncle.  Since that estate was split 50% to my aunt and then 50% with my six siblings, one of whom has since passed, I would be entitled to 10 plus 5% of my brother's share, so $10.50.  Not worth it for any of us.

 

For my husband, I found over $1000 for his deceased parents.  That one will be worth it ($250+ for each sibling).  I notified my BIL, who was executor of the estate.  We will see if anything comes of it.

That's awesome!  

 

I submitted my claim in early November. It has been received by the state but the payment can take up to 6 months.  So I guess by April I'll get the funds.

Capital One Bank owes me 34 cents. This must be 20 years old. Can I add interest? I still live in the same house. Smiley Very Happy
