- Check the division of unclaimed property for any state you’ve lived in (https://www.claimittn.gov/)
- Perform a free search on the national site – unclaimed.org – which is endorsed by the National Association of Unclaimed Property.
- Make sure you also search by last name only, with just your first initial, as well as with your maiden name if you’re married.
- You’ll also want to search on behalf of deceased relatives
- Don’t forget to search IRS.gov for past tax refunds you may be owed as well as Treasuryhunt.gov for unclaimed savings bonds.
- If you have a child in college or getting ready to go, you can also search for College Scholarships (most people aren’t aware that millions of dollars a year in potential scholarships go unclaimed). But, they’re not just going to jump out at you; you have to find them.
