You may think lost money is ridiculous, but it’s more common than you might imagine. Last year, over $3.2 billion of unclaimed property was returned to its rightful owners, yet 60% still goes unclaimed. The US government has implemented active outreach programs to reunite unclaimed property owners with their lost or forgotten assets. Is it possible that you started a savings account and then forgot about it? Or maybe haven’t cashed a dividend check you’ve received?
