You might be leaving a trail of money behind you and not even know it. Perhaps you moved and forgot to collect a security deposit or a utility company sent a refund to the wrong address. This money is still owed to you and you can search for it online.
Missing Money has a database that compiles information about property, utility deposits
and insurance policies that remain unclaimed. Simply type in your name and see if any money is waiting for you. The site is sponsored by the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators, which provides helpful links to state agencies that keep track of unclaimed property.
