While you might believe that most individuals would remember about property or money that has gone missing, there is a surprising quantity of unclaimed property. While some of the monetary amounts are minor, others are rather substantial. For example, there is at least one million-dollar pension that has not been claimed. This makes it worthwhile to check if you have any unclaimed property.
When we talk about big numbers, we’re talking about huge numbers. How big is it? If the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators (NAUPA) numbers are valid, the total value of unclaimed property in the United States is estimated to be over $42 billion. California is home to a large portion of that money. California now has more than $8 billion in unclaimed property that belongs to around 32.5 million people and businesses.
