Singletary:  Five Places to Look for Unclaimed Money

By Jacquie Bokow

In her 2 September 2018 column “The Color of Money” in The Washington Post, fiscally conservative financial columnist Michelle Singletary listed five places readers of her column had identified (in an online discussion) where people can find unclaimed funds that belong to them.  You don’t need to pay someone to find lost property, you can do it yourself for free.  Here are her suggestions of where to look.  (Note that, for each of these, you’ll have to provide personal details — probably including your Social Security Number — in order to prove your own identity.)

Singletary prompts us to “go look for your money,” but she cautions us to be careful of missing money scams.  “Don’t pay someone to do a search you can do for free,” she admonishes. “The point is to find cash, not give it away.”   ■
