NEED CASH: Unclaimed Property

NEED CASH: Unclaimed Property

If you have recently found yourself looking through pants pockets, coats, and purses for a few extra bucks, try a different method.

Each state has an Unclaimed Property Department in which you may can collect some cash or material items you did not know were waiting on you. I was successful when I contacted the Illinois Cash Dash program via web. The process was extremely simple and lucky me, I claimed $78 in checks I had not received from 2 previous places of employment.

At this time, The Illinois Unclaimed Property Department is auctioning over 15,000 items which have not been claimed within 5 years. If you do not live in Illinois, your state may have a similar auction going. Who knows, you may find some great savings for Christmas shopping!


And please feel free to share information about your sates Unclaimed Property Department.

Below is a link to the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators. Search the site for more information on your states unclaimed property.
