1. When I did this search a few years ago I didn’t find any money for myself. Then I became curious and started looking for family members. I found my Dad some money (nothing much, about $100) from an old insurance policy and found my grandmother $250 of dividends from an investment. I found the whole process fun…like a treasure hunt.

    The claiming process was fairly straightforward as well. My Dad filled out a few forms online, printed, signed and mailed in.

  2. My biggest find was for a friend a few years ago. She had a rebate coming and the company sent it to her street address. We don’t have street delivery here and it was returned as undeliverable, so they turned it over to the state and there it was just waiting to be found.
