Search for unclaimed money at the Treasury Department's website

(National) September 19, 2005 - There's a big pot of money sitting at the US Treasury Department, and some of it may belong to you.

Millions of government bonds have matured and are no longer earning interest, and they have been cashed in, creating more than $13 billion in unclaimed money.

In most case, families have either misplaced or forgotten about the bonds. You can search for unclaimed bonds by social security number at the treasury department's website.
