How to find your missing property for free

How to find your missing property for free

(Credit and Money Matters, Everything Else) Permanent link

Have you ever been contacted by someone who claims you may have some missing or unclaimed property that you didn’t know about? These businesses offer to locate your missing assets for a fee. But you don’t need to pay money to get yours back because you can search for unclaimed property for free. The Department of Revenue maintains an online “lost and found” database at http://ucp.dor.wa.gov/.  Enter your name or your business' name to find out what’s waiting for you, click “pursue claim” and follow the instructions. You may be asked for proof of ID and your address.Typical unclaimed property includes bank accounts, insurance proceeds, stocks, bonds, utility deposits and uncashed payroll checks. I ended up receiving a check for about $20. My sister and stepfather have money waiting for them too!

I remember when growing up my father; Homie Bing, saying he was given some land in the south (I'm not sure if it was South Carolina or North Carolina) by his Aunt. When he retired he was going to live there. I remember him going down to visit so I know this wasn't a pipe dream. Well life took a series of turns and changes and we ended up moving and living in Ohio until he passed away. I was wondering what ever became of the land he was given by His Aunt Pauline Bing.
