I've always heard about unclaimed funds but never gave them any thought until I checked out New York Unclaimed Funds. This is the website for the comptroller of New York and all you have to do is input your name to see if you've got any money lying around. Naturally, I had none but my hubby did! We just have to have the form notarized before we send it in to be processed.
That was a pretty interesting, but unexpected, experience. I'd imagine other state comptrollers have similar websites as well. It certainly wouldn't hurt to look.
Its a gloomy looking day in New York. The kind of day you want to snuggle up with a blanket and a book. I'll be making some Lima Bean Minestrone Soup in the pressure cooker.
