It's TRUE! The North Carolina Department of the State Treasurer has $500 million it is trying to give away! If you are a North Carolina resident, there is a one-in-eight chance you are due a portion of this pot-of-gold.
Let me back up a little. This $500 million consists of unclaimed money from bank accounts, wages, utility deposits, insurance policy proceeds, stocks, bonds, safe deposit boxes and other sources. Funds often go unclaimed when companies can't track down the rightful owners because of changes of address or incomplete information.
As a North Carolina resident, you can search on www.NCCash.com to see if the state of North Carolina is holding unclaimed cash for you. Administered by the NC Department of State Treasurer, the website search is free, quick and easy. Filing a claim is as easy as filling out an online form, printing it, having your signature notarized and dropping it in the mail! You can even sign up to be alerted if any future unclaimed money comes in for you.
This free service is available for other states, as well. If you live or have lived outside of North Carolina, you can check www.MissingMoney.com to see if you have unclaimed money in any of the other states. You might be surprised to know that you have a check waiting for you!
So don't delay! See if you could be due a check from North Carolina or the other 49 states.
