The National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators said there is about $58 billion in unclaimed money and property sitting around– mostly in state treasuries– all over the country.
The funds come from forgotten bank accounts, stock holdings, pensions and life insurance payouts.
Someone in Connecticut claimed nearly $33 million from an old stock sale.
