Unclaimed Government Money on Newsfeed - 16 Billion Dollars. No, it’s not Mark Zuckerberg’s rainy day fund, that is the amount of unclaimed money in the United States waiting to be given back to its rightful owners. The money includes forgotten apartment security deposits, missing insurance refunds and overtime checks that were never cashed. I think it is crazy, I mean I’m so broke I cash in my pennies for laundry money. So it’s time to get that missing money back! You could either search by items like failed bank accounts or do a general search at treasurydirect.gov. I have a feeling I will not get around to searching for missing money because if I was motivated I wouldn’t be so broke in the first place.
