Unclaimed Money "GMA" Decided To Try It

Posted by Zotta Rendevouz

Billions of dollars. This is the amount of unclaimed money in the U.S. waiting to be returned to their rightful owners. The money has forgotten the security deposits of the house, without overtime controls and insurance reimbursements have been lost, and he is sitting there waiting for you.

Banks and other businesses are forced to put more money unclaimed States for safekeeping. The 50 states plus the District of Columbia have established a free website, you can use to see if funding forgotten his name.

"GMA" decided to try it.

At the crossroads of America, Times Square, we established our "GMA" headquarters unclaimed money.

Soon we are in business and I am a hero or a zero.

Initially, we sweat - in fact freezing - as we get somewhere. Nada.

But over a woman is lucky.

Motorola have the money and the state of New York is sending a check.

It is important to review each state in which they lived.

And every name you've ever experienced.

Thirty-two minutes after our experience, we have reached a scratch.

We found modest amounts of several people in a row.

Not all government websites tell you how much money you have coming up.

Then a woman brought us together, that the suspect had asked for money from the husband's name. In fact, the money was waiting for him a sense of banker's not used. And we suspect a dollar amount was high, since New York was not ready to blindly send a check. Instead, the state wanted to pass on a couple of honor, to insist on their money.

We conducted 25 searches found no money in seven of these cases.

We found the money for these people happy to use the free site created by the States. However, there are new ways to find unclaimed money for consulting with the federal government.


The U.S. Treasury billions of dollars in savings bonds that have matured and do not earn more interest, but was not thrown in by the owners. Finance has created a website where you can search the Social Security number.


Bank deposits are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., and if you do not need to collect the money when the bank is gone, the FDIC believes that money. He did not credit unions, Credit Union National Association does the same thing.
