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.

Millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using TheBudgetingTool.com. Since then, I have paid my $600K home in cash (my half was $300K), my $180K casr in cash, worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.
