Is Money Tight Right Now? Here’s Why Checking For Unclaimed Property Could Bring a Surprise

Millions of Americans are struggling with their personal finances this year. The coronavirus pandemic has hurt small business, limited work opportunities and stretched personal savings to the limit.

But if you’re struggling to make ends meet or eager for a financial boost, you might be surprised to learn that there could be money waiting for you in your state’s treasury. Every year, state governments collect unclaimed property and money. And there’s a good chance some of that property or money could belong to you.

As Avenu’s David Milby explains in his latest op-ed for Fox Business, there’s a quick and easy way to check for unclaimed property. It’s called MissingMoney.com. MissingMoney compiles asset listings from 41 different state databases and makes all those databases easily accessible and searchable from a single website.

The National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators (NAUPA) calculates that 1 in 10 Americans are owed some sort of unclaimed property. Read David’s op-ed here to learn more about unclaimed property and how MissingMoney.com can help you find it.
