The Department of Commerce has released a new list of unclaimed funds accounts. You may have hundreds, even thousands of dollars waiting for you to claim.
Unclaimed funds are accounts that have gone dormant. They may be a forgotten insurance policy, an uncashed check or a forgotten rent, phone or electricity deposit. More than 53,000 claims were paid out in 2013, with each one averaging $1292.
An updated list of unclaimed funds accounts is available on the Department of Commerce’s Online Treasure Hunt at http://www.com.ohio.gov/unfd/. The website also has forms for individuals and organizations to use in claiming their money.
Anyone with questions about unclaimed funds can call the Division toll free at 1-877-644-6823 (OHIO UCF).
