Millions of Americans have money just sitting around in the form of abandoned bank accounts, unclaimed life insurance payouts, forgotten pension benefits and more. The unclaimed assets held by Government and other agencies total near $60 BILLION.

Heard a story recently on ABC News that there was a booth at the Tennessee State Fair where their State Treasury Department gave people the chance to put their name in the system to see what comes up. A lady at one event found out that she was owed $1.2 million for a stock option she didn't even know her husband had before he died.

 

The Michigan Department of Treasury has a link here where you can check if you've got money or property just sitting around that you may have forgotten about - and you can file a form to claim it.

Yea, I tried it...no luck. Let me know if you find money that's yours!
