California has received over $6 Billion in unclaimed property. Is any of it yours?

In case you missed the post on Law Soup a couple weeks ago, the government may be holding some money or personal items in your name, just waiting for you to claim it!

As of 2012, California has received over $6 billion in unclaimed property. Could any of that be yours? (I recently found $50 in my name!)

Seriously, it couldn’t be easier. Just search here and type in your name (city is optional, and best to leave it blank for the broadest search). If you find anything, you may be able to claim it electronically if it’s under $1,000.

Also be sure to check any other state where you have lived, worked, received mail, or conducted any transactions. Let me know if you find anything!
