The Indiana Attorney General's office runs the Unclaimed Property Division. Periodically, they place ads in the newspapers, listing names of people who've got something (generally money) claimable.
My sister texted me the other day: I was on the list.
So was my late mother. She's got several small listings, in fact, and I need to tell my brother (who has a couple dollars waiting from the BMV himself), since he's her executor.
As for my unknown amount, I went to their site, entered the name and -- there I was. There are
forms to fill out with various identifying information; I did so and the state says they'll send me a check
in a few weeks.
Okay, this is pretty much the modern-day version of finding a twenty-dollar bill and seventy-five cents in cash between the sofa cushions, but hey, money that would have otherwise been missed. -- and direct benefit from My Tax Dollars At Work. Shouldn't pass that up.
