Now, if you live in a place for a while, it’s easy to see how you might forget that you put up this chunk of money, a utility deposit, all so you could stay warm or cool or take showers. Some people put down a deposit for home phone service too, but I hesitate to even mention that because it sounds so quaint. Anyway… utility deposits are a common form of unclaimed money. You get a new job offer or a new apartment and are so wrapped up in moving tables that you leave money on the table. So, think back, did you ever pay a utility deposit? Better yet, just do a quick search and see. Your utility has to turn this money over to the state where you live or lived after 3 to 5 years. As always, you can search 40 states for free by going to MissingMoney.com. You can search the other 10 at unclaimed.org. Yes, .org. If you find a lost utility deposit, please will you share the good news? I look forward to hearing from you.
