Found Money

Last week the 2009 Unclaimed Property List for the state of RI was included as a insert in our state paper, The Providence Journal. This multi page newspaper insert is published each year and lists everyone in the state who has unclaimed property. This year there are over 14,000 people listed for a total of over $200 million in unclaimed assets. Every year, I diligently check this list, ever hopeful that I will find my name. Who am I kidding? Did I really think I had forgotten about some investment account or that I am the beneficiary of a trust fund from a long lost rich relative. Yeah, right! Keep dreaming. Yet, every year I check and every year I'm disappointed. Who knows maybe next year....

You never know! :)

I always check, too - and am dismayed at how many people who share my name but are not me have something coming to them.

I check because some 15 years ago my car was stolen and there was supposed to be restitution, but I was told not to hold my breath. Blood from a stone and all.

But still I check! You never know!

Hi Shelly, Celine and Tammy - Hope springs eternal, right?!

I checked my state last year and there was $150 left over from a utility deposit that I never got after I moved out of my college apartment. You never know :-)

I check, and then double check, you know, in case I missed it the first time.
