My wife has actually done this three times
in the last few years here in Texas. Ironically, the last one was about 30
bucks that the PE Board had been “overpaid” by me for license renewal (at those
prices, I didn’t know it was POSSIBLE to overpay the Texas P.E. Board; we have
one of the highest license renewal fees in the country at $240 a pop).

Subject: Off Topic: Unclaimed
I received a letter a
few days ago from a company that claims I was owed some money that I had better
claim or the state of California would take the funds. For a fee,
the company would retrieve my claim for me.
This got me to
thinking that I could do the same and I went to the State of California
website at: https://scoweb.sco.ca.gov/
only to find out that there were two claims for money (probably from interest
after I moved from Los Angeles). Websites like this are located in every
state. I checked some years ago but found that nothing was reported against my
name until now.
I would recommend that
all of you check every state that you have investments that may have been
closed out but have ultimately left money for you that went unclaimed. In my
case it was not a great amount but well worth the effort to obtain. The effort
includes printing out the forms and an acknowledgment form from the Internet.
The acknowledgement must be completed with personal information and then
notarized and submitted to the State’s Comptrollers Office.
