How to Find Out If the Government Owes Me Money
You might have money coming your way.

Log on to the website of the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators (see Reference).

Click on your state of residence from the map. If you lived in several different states, click on each one in turn.

Enter your first and last name in the unclaimed property search box. The last name is a required field, but entering at least a few letters of your first name as well will make the search results more accurate.

Search under each name you have used in the past, including your maiden name. The more information you can provide the better your chances of finding any money the government owes you.
