MissingMoney.com: Find Money That Belongs to You

This content uses referral links. Read our disclosure policy for more info.

Here at Pocket Your Dollars, we may focus on saving money, but finding money is a good idea, too.

MissingMoney.com is a free search of governmental unclaimed money/property records. Just type in your name and the state(s) of residence (including former states you’ve lived in) and you might find a record of money or property that rightfully belongs to you. If so, MissingMoney.com helps you receive your money by telling you how to claim it.

I (Laura) just did a search in the states I’ve lived in, and while I didn’t find any missing money for myself, I did find some belonging to one of my cousins. I’ll need to contact him to let him know!

(Thanks, Sandee!)

Your turn: Did you by any chance find any missing money that belongs to you?

  1. A few years ago, my sister-in-law found some money on these sites belonging to my husband's late ex-wife. It was an insurance refund check that was never cashed. He filed a claim form and was able to get the check reissued pretty easily.

    wow! i just found money for my cousin's wife! crazy!! i sent him an email to let them know and had to make sure i told him this WASN'T spam, because it totally sounds like it could be!

  3. You can't really believe the "over $100" notation. My husband had a listing for over $100.00 and it turned out to be 3 shares of a previous employer's stock that was worth $26.00. It did buy 1/2 a tank of gas for our vacation, though.

      Too funny Kathy.

      My husband also had an "over $100" notation and it ended up being an insurnace payment for around $75….not quite over $100

  4. Thank you. Found my DH's name on it. I think it is just a medical bill we paid twice, but every dime helps these days.

  5. Kirsten says:

    Wow. A quick search found one listing for me and 4 listings for my brother! I had no idea! Filling out my form now.

  6. Be careful about these types of sites. Sometimes government agencies use these to get your contact information for a debt they think you owe. Even if they made a mistake and did not contact you or sent something to an incorrect address, you could find yourself getting calls from a collection agency for a bill you never received. This happened to me and it was a big mess trying to get everything straightened out.

  7. About a year ago I found my brothers name on this website and he was able to claim about $130.00 he didnt even know about.

  8. Looking for missing money that belong to me.
