In Money, Wealth

Do you have unclaimed money lying around somewhere?

At the end of last year, the Bank of Canada was holding approximately 1.8 million unclaimed balances worth $678 million.

“The biggest balance we have on our banks right now is about $800,000,” said the Bank of Canada’s Josianne Menard.

EIGHT HUNDRED THOUSAND?

Oh please please let it be my name…!! 😛

(Sadly it wasn’t.)

But maybe it’s yours?

Canadians: Use this Bank of Canada Unclaimed Balances Portal to search for your name. Easy peasy.

Americans: You have less of an easier time to find out if you have unclaimed funds, so read this.

Basically in your state, search for “UNCLAIMED FUNDS” or “UNCLAIMED MONEY” or “UNCLAIMED BALANCE” … and get searching.

If you don’t claim the money?

It is donated to the country.


GO AND CHECK PLEASE! Report back if you find anything. I love hearing these stories.

Sherry of Save. Spend. Splurge.

I got out of $60,000 of debt in 18 months using TheBudgetingTool.com. Since then, I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K (savings rate = 85%). I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.
