Where does unclaimed money and property come from?
Some states now have laws on the books stating that owners have 10 years from the date the property was reported, to make your claim. One thing is certain! Your unclaimed money is going to remain idle in unclaimed property offices until YOU or your next rightful heir comes to claim it.
FACT: An estimated 7 out of 10 Americans are owed unclaimed money.
FACT: The U.S. Government DOES NOT have one central database for unclaimed money
FACT: Unless you know where to look, you’ll never find a dime of your unclaimed money.
The Shocking Reason The U.S. Government Hopes You Never Find YOUR Unclaimed Money! Currently, Uncle Sam is squatting on nearly 40 Billion dollars of unclaimed money, property, stock, cash and more.
You don’t have to be a math genius to see how much interest the U.S.Government stands to earn on 40 billion dollars. Is it any wonder the government makes it incredibly difficult to locate and retrieve money that’s rightfully yours?
Some states have even been caught trying to balance their budget with your unclaimed money. It’s not legal, but they were doing it.
Truth Is, The Government Does Little To Help Any Person Locate Unclaimed Money
The U.S. Government might send a letter to the last known address, or run a few tiny classifieds in the back of a newspaper. However, Uncle Sam will not deliver your unclaimed money on a silver platter.
If you want it, you’ve got to go get it. I wish it would work this way when we owed taxes. Searching for lost money used to mean a lot of time and effort on your part. Hours of research and digging in the local library. But not any more.
We have made it possible to find your unclaimed money or property with little or no leg work at all.
Search, Locate And Collect Unclaimed Money Just Like A Professional Finder. No need to pay a professional finder! No need to pay ridiculous “per search” charges!
Here are your links to help you find your unclaimed money:
1.) NAUPA – National Association Of Unclaimed Property Administrators: Conduct a free multi-state search by going directly to Unclaimed.org, the NAUPA-sponsored search engine, or search state-by-state on individual unclaimed property programs by clicking the appropriate jurisdiction on the map or drop box below. You should search in every state where you have lived, using all names from your past and present; maiden names, etc.
2.) HUD.GOV – Does HUD Owe You A Refund?
|If you had an FHA-insured mortgage, you may be eligible for a refund from HUD/FHA|
3.) National Credit Union Administration – Unclaimed Deposits
When a credit union with federal insurance is liquidated, NCUA’s Asset Management and Assistance Center is responsible for paying the share accounts to the members.
Invariably, some items may remain unclaimed. Some checks are never cashed; or the credit union’s address information was incomplete. There are also cases when we don’t have a recent address and are unable to get a forwarding address from the post office.
Share accounts claimed within the 18-month insurance period are paid at their full-insured amount. At the expiration of the 18-month insurance period, shares that are not claimed are considered uninsured and written down to share in the loss to the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund. Even if shares are uninsured when they are claimed, there may still be a distribution.
On rare occasions, the liquidation of a credit union may result in surplus funds. If a surplus remains, a distribution to the shareholders is required. This may occur several years after the credit union is liquidated and it is sometimes difficult to locate these members.
If you believe that NCUA may be holding funds for you, please click on the link & review their current list of unclaimed deposits:
It’s important to know all claims are not listed in online databases, and you need to search at least once a year! Claims not listed today, could very well be added tomorrow, or the next day, or a month or year from now. So it is truly crucial to search at least once or twice a year.
Look, there’s a 70% chance you have some sort of money out there, waiting for you to find it. If not for you, at least you will find money for a friend or relative. You will certainly never know unless you search!!!
Psalm 15: 1-5
1.) (A Psalm of David.) LORD, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?
2.) He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.
3.) He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.
4.) In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.
5.) He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.
