Missouri has a billion dollars in unclaimed property that is never spoken for. There's a one in ten chance that they have something meant for you based on statistics. There's an easy way to find out if you're one of the lucky ones.

The Missouri Treasurer's website is where you can look to see if they have property that should be in your hands. They say it's the biggest lost and found in America and judging by all the items listed, that's probably accurate. This is what the portal looks like where you can begin your quest.

Here are some numbers to consider if you live in Missouri (or even if you don't, but have either lived here or have family here):

  • The state of Missouri has $1 billion dollars in unclaimed stuff
  • 1 in 10 Missourians have property that they rightfully own, but isn't claimed
  • The average amount of unclaimed property is around $300
  • There is no cost to pay to have Missouri return your property

It's entirely possible that you have someone who left you something that is only a couple of clicks away. I walked my talk and did a search and it took less than 15 seconds to learn that no one in Missouri has left me anything (*sad face*).

You literally have nothing to lose and everything to gain to take a few seconds and see if the Missouri Treasurer's Office has your unclaimed property. Check the official Missouri portal to see if your one of the lucky 1 in 10.
