Is the State of Ohio (or other state) Holding Money that is legally yours?

Do you want to be the super fantastic all star of your family this week?  Do you want to use your exciting ‘web browser’ skills to find money for your family that is rightfully theirs?

It’s simple really

Every so often the state of Ohio receives word of funds available from various entities- be it insurance companies, banks, utilities and private companies.  These are funds that belong to individuals- like you, me, or your grandma Flo.  They hold onto the cash for X months and make it known that it is available through their website. Currently this ‘jackpot’ is at $32 plus million dollars -and that’s just sourced from Summit County!

Go Treasure Hunting for Unclaimed Funds

So, I bid you to click here on the MissingMoney website ( the multi-state cooperative that manages finding people) and type in your last name, your maiden name, and the last names and maiden names of the generation older than your immediate family.  I myself found that either my grandpa or my dad, or someone with his name living in his same hometown is owed (under $100) from a Progressive Casualty Insurance Company.

This effort goes so quick- its very easy.  And the good thing is that you can be a heroin to your grandma if you find that she is owed $314 for an overpaid water bill that she left behind when she left her old house in 1987.  Go on- make grandma proud.
