Money, money, money! Thanks to our story on the millions of dollars in unclaimed funds, we reunited people with hundreds of thousands of dollars.


We're hearing from lots of viewers on Facebook that they've been able to find some cash. Some have several claims in their name, like Angie, who had eight claims for more than $50! Other viewers have found hundreds of dollars not only for themselves, but for relatives as well.

As you look to see whether you have any unclaimed funds, here are some tips and tricks:

  • You can search for your relatives, neighbors, and friends and let them know if they have cash
