Check It Out Where to inquire about cash owed your family

(MONEY Magazine) – Here is where to check out whether you are owed any unclaimed treasure from your past. In pursuing such funds, apply not only to your present state of residence but also to all the others where you have resided and had financial dealings. The 33 offices that accept phone queries are marked by an asterisk. The 17 others and Puerto Rico require requests in writing. Michigan insists on relevant search information up front -- the bank and account number in question, the landlord's name and address and the like. All the other states will accept a more general fishing request.
