At an average of 40 million pounds, the State of Maine supplies 90 percent of lobster in the USA. Unknown to most residents, the State Treasury stores something more irresistible than spiky red shellfish- Maine unclaimed money.

Each year, residents lose track of an average of $25 million worth of financial assets. Old bank accounts, forgotten gift cards, uncashed checks, etc. The State collects the lost money from establishments each year and tries its best to contact or inform the owners through newspaper publications. Maine unclaimed money whose owners have no known address are used to balance the State budget. At 43% , ME has one of the highest rates of return of State unclaimed property in the US. “In the last couple of years we’ve been doing a massive reorganization of the unclaimed property effort here, and I think it has paid off,” says State Treasurer David Lemoine. One of the things that have helped increase the return of unclaimed money in Maine with its owners is a state policy that lets legislators gain favor by locating residents and reuniting them with their missing money. “There’s nobody in the state who knows how to find somebody better than the local legislators,” says the State Treasurer.

Still, there’s a significant amount of Maine unclaimed money left in the Treasury. The town of Saco alone has 2,600 unclaimed property owners who are missing money. One elderly woman turns out she had a whopping $2,000 ME unclaimed funds coming to her from refunds. In a report by The Times Record, 1,240 Freeport residents have over $345,000 in their name and 157 people in Pownal are owed $24,282 unclaimed funds.

Banks, insurance companies and businesses are required by the National Unclaimed Property Law to report Maine unclaimed property that haven’t been collected after a specified period (usually 3-5 years). World-renowned clothing company LL Bean is the largest reporter of Maine unclaimed property in the form of gift cards. People just stick them somewhere and forget about them. With the country’s financial giants on their knees and cost of living going-up, Americans need all the cash they can get and learning how to do an effective unclaimed money search online can be one the easiest ways of doing this.


The now defunct New Kids On The Block, superstar chefs Ming Tsai and Todd English, even star slugger for the Boston Red Sox Nomar Garciaparra are on the State of Massachussetts unclaimed property list. This means the State owes them MA unclaimed money from financial assets they’ve lost track of over the years. Isn’t it kind of odd that the government can’t track these people down to reunite them with their MA unclaimed funds?

The National Unclaimed Property Law requires businesses and institutions like IRS to turn over state unclaimed property from bank accounts, tax rebate checks, stocks, insurance benefits, etc. to the State Treasury if they’ve been inactive for a 3-5 years. The State has the responsibility of safekeeping and locating owners of unclaimed money using the last known address of owners. Massachusetts keeps unclaimed money belonging to MA unclaimed property owners they can’t find, but how does this explain NKOTB, a famous Red Sox star, and celebrity chefs being owed MA unclaimed funds? It’s not as if these people are difficult to locate like the average Joe.

Think about it, if members of a famous boyband and an award-winning Chinese-American chef can be owed Massachusetts unclaimed money from Metlife stocks ($800 worth) and $921 in cash (respectively), what more a regular resident of Massachusetts? Even an eatery which can be easily located (Legal Seafoods Seafoods) is owed a whopping $5,103 unclaimed cash!

Roughly 40,000 names are on the State’s recent list of MA unclaimed property owners and they’re owed a total of $13 million according to a Boston Herald report on MA unclaimed money. That doesn’t even include previous unclaimed property owners still in the state’s database! Even retired state officials have $14 million unclaimed retirement benefits owed them, says NBC’s Channel 7 News based in Boston. You can be one of the scores of Americans missing money and not even know it. Do an unclaimed money search now and get crucial cash in your pockets! In times like these, it wouldn’t hurt.

“We’ve got money that belongs to people in every nook and cranny in Alabama,” words from State Treasurer Kay Ivey that should be music to the ears of Alabama residents. 18,000 residents of Lee County alone have almost $5 million from abandoned safe deposit box contents which have been collected by the State as Alabama unclaimed property. These, along with financial assets from dormant bank accounts, languishing stocks and bonds, uncollected salaries, uncashed checks, etc. are required by the National Unclaimed Property Law to be turned over to the State after 3-5 years of going unclaimed.

Residents of other Alabama counties have even more unclaimed funds coming to them, of course. The total Alabama unclaimed money in the Treasurer’s Office is almost $400 million right now and the pile of unclaimed funds is getting bigger each year because most people aren’t even aware that the State has their lost money from forgotten assets. “Many people are simply unaware that unclaimed property exists in their name,” says Deputy Treasurer Anthony Leigh. In the 2007 fiscal year, $55.6 million AL unclaimed funds from abandoned assets were collected and only $23 million reunited with Alabama unclaimed property owners.

Alabama, like most other states keep residents’ unclaimed money in perpetuity until the rightful owners or their next of kin show-up. “There is no time limit by which the individual must come forward to claim property. individuals claiming property for themselves must present identification and proof of address or social security number depending on the information submitted by the business that turned the property over to us,” Leigh says. That’s a comforting thought for people who have their hands too full to be searching for unclaimed property right now, but with the poor economy and high costs of living in the U.S. right now, doing an unclaimed money search right now might be a wise move.

A lone accountant recently took on the IRS in a case disputing how much the Tax Giant collected on de-mutualized insurance policy shares and policies. Well, David slew Goliath and this means millions of taxpayers have refund checks coming.  Charles Ulrich’s win couldn’t have come at a better time as a lot of people across the US are really struggling to make ends meet.  For non-holders of these ‘de-mutualized‘ assets, there’s still good news- unclaimed tax refunds.

Tax rebates are sent the same way taxpayers file for them, so if you deposited your return electronically, the IRS will automatically deposit your rebates to your account. Most US taxpayers now file their income tax online, but tens of millions still file it via snail mail. This invariably results in unclaimed tax rebates whenever these people move without leaving a forwarding address. Unclaimed tax refunds are another thing for reluctant taxpayers to look forward to during this time of recession. The amount of unclaimed money from New York State tax refunds is quite staggering- almost $10 million worth! Unclaimed tax rebates make-up a big part of the $8 billion New York unclaimed property fund in the State Treasury. In Virginia, Maine and Tennessee, unclaimed checks averaging $700-$800 are yet to be put in the hands of thousands of residents who probably aren’t even aware they are owed unclaimed tax rebates by the IRS. There are 187,000 LA state unclaimed tax refunds also worth around $10 million waiting for residents of The Pelican State. The total unclaimed money in Louisiana owed to citizens is well over $300,000. California leads the country in unclaimed tax refunds right now with $40 million belonging to 500,000  residents(133,604 in Los Angeles County) unfiled for.

The piles of unclaimed cash with the IRS keep growing among the different states and this lost money is eventually handed-over to the State Treasuries- going to an unclaimed property fund along with other unclaimed assets. Generally, the government holds on to these assets indefinitely until the rightful owners show-up. If you or your relatives have been moving, changing addresses frequently, odds are you may have unclaimed money from tax refunds or other unclaimed property in your name. Do an on-line unclaimed money search now!- who knows? You may have a thousand or two gathering dust somewhere and not even know it.
