Where’s the Money? States with the Most Unclaimed Property

We’d heard there’s over $42 billion in unclaimed property across the US. But how does this break down state by state? As there was no clear answer, the Claimdog team did some research. Here’s a ranked list of states with the most unclaimed property, with links to sources.

Most interestingly, adding up the states, it looks like there’s over $60 billion unclaimed, not $42 billion. So that’s $18 billion more reasons you should make sure to collect your piece of the pie!
