How to use unclaimed property to find money

Posted: Updated:

We all could use a little extra cash.

But you might not know the state could be saving some -- just for you.

South Dakota has millions in cash and goods -- just waiting for its rightful owners to claim.

If you have ever overpaid a bill or forgot to pick up a final pay check, that money goes to the State Treasury Department.

And you can see if you have any money waiting, by going to their website.

Here's how to see if any is waiting for you.

Go to

Click on unclaimed property.

Search for your name, and make you sure you search all of the legal names you have had.

So your maiden name and your married name.

We will try Jeff Smith for example.

And Jeff Smith has money.

Select the box, click view results.

And you will see Jeff Smith has $75 from a cashiers check waiting for him.

So now if I were Jeff, I would click on get property.

This is where the personal information comes in so you can receive your money.

But when you search, you would fill out this information and hit submit.

It's as simple as that.

You should check every state you have lived in because you could have money waiting for there too.
