The Political Agitator response: This is real type in your name and you may be surprised that you are on the list. I claimed some for my dad a couple of years ago.
If you are strapped for cash this new year after all that holiday shopping you might want to check out the N.C. Unclaimed Property Fund. The fund helps reunite owners with their unclaimed property that officials say have been abandoned for one to five years. And it’s easy as one click to find out if you or your agency or business has any part of the $383 million in unclaimed property in North Carolina.
“As a public service, the state makes an effort to reunite consumers with property that have become unclaimed because the company loses track of the consumer, due to an incorrect address or other missing information,” said Brad Young, spokesperson for the N.C. Office of the State Treasurer. Young said by law these types of funds are turned over to the Department of State Treasurer for safekeeping.
“The property could range from tangible items, like the contents of an abandoned lock box, to refunds and deposits, to unclaimed life insurance policy proceeds,” Young said. Other unclaimed property consists of bank accounts, wages, utility deposits, stocks and bonds.
