Amazingly, less than two months from mailing in my claim submission, the State of California actually sent me a check for my $74.93 in unclaimed money. Thanks guys, sorry you can’t use it to plug your gaping budget hole, but I’m sure you’ll get me back somehow. Here’s an expanded listing of useful websites to see if you’ve got any money waiting for you:
- USA.gov – Listing of US government-related items, including bank FDIC insurance failures, mortgage insurance refunds, and more.
- Unclaimed.org – State-by-state unclaimed property listings
- California Unclaimed Property page
- PBGC.gov – Unclaimed pension plan benefits
