KSTP is working with the Minnesota Department of Commerce to connect Minnesotans with unclaimed money. The state is holding $550 million in forgotten funds from stocks, un-cashed paychecks, life insurance policies, deposits for utilities, dormant bank accounts and other sources. The forgotten funds can be a result of things like address changes, deaths and forgetfulness. It's estimated one in 20 Minnesotans have money owed to them, and often they don't know it.
Watch out for possible scams. The Department of Commerce does not charge for filing claims regardless of the amount returned. Also, the Department of Commerce does not proactively reach out to consumers to ask for personal information. If you are approached via email, letter or telephone claiming you have unclaimed property at the state, do not provide any personal information. Instead, initiate the claim process on your own.

Didn't find any money for me but played around with names and found money for my sister and a couple other relatives! Thanks for sharing!
I was going to purchase something from Kowalski's and the manager informed me that they were checking people names for unclaimed cash. She said go give them your name. I found I have $230 coming back. Also, got to do a live interview. Plus, just told my brother-in-law and he has something coming back also. Don't hurt to check, you might get a check.
