Found Money

by

Everyone can always use extra money and especially so as we face the Christmas Season. If there is any chance that you or a family member – living or deceased – may have had a life insurance policy that was never paid, forgotten or abandoned bank accounts, uncollected stock dividends, tax refunds, utility deposits, or any other money due to you (or that family member) and not collected or received ……… there’s hope! There are ways to track such money down and collect it either with help from firms or organizations that do so (often for a fee) or directly from or through government organizations. Here are a few places to look:

In Texas alone on Apr 15, 2013 there was more than $2 Billion worth of Texas unclaimed money being held by the Lone Star State. There are about 25 million people in Texas and about 6 million names on the list of unclaimed money in Texas. That means approximately one in four Texans have unclaimed money being held for them! Go to unclaimed-funds.org/texas/ or go to the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts at www.window.state.tx.us/…/reclaim… and on this Web site, click on “Search Unclaimed Property” and follow the directions.

Some additional places to look are:
• For general sources of missing, lost, and unclaimed property, money and assets go to www.missingmoney.com/
• For unclaimed money such as undelivered tax refunds, FDIC bank refunds, to replace a Savings Bond and other governmental funds go to www.usa.gov/Citizen/…/Government-Unclaimed-Money
• For lost life insurance, stock dividends, bank funds go to mib.com/lost_life_insurance.html
• For retiree pension funds go to PBGC.gov or for 401(k) plan funds go to unclaimedretirementbenefits.com or askebsa.dol.gov/abandonedplansearch
• For government Bonds go to treasurydirect.gov

The deals at Norton Automotive Group may not be like finding money but they do help you find wheels without the burden of a bad credit score keeping you from finding a car you really like.
