The state of Missouri is like a lint roller (so to speak). For some reason, the state accumulates money and property that isn't theirs and it might belong to you. There's so much crap property that the state has that's unclaimed, the Missouri State Treasurer has a website devoted to all this crap property. The form looks like this.

OK, Missouri. Time to pay up. What's interest on one penny over 40 years? Asking for a friend.

I saw the Kansas City Star mention that the state of Missouri has millions of dollars worth of cash and property that residents have yet to claim. I saw my cousin is listed with his wife as being owed "more than $50". Should I tell him they're rich?

Check the Missouri Treasurer's website to see if the state owes you big bucks. Would be a shame for all that cash with your name on it to just be sitting there when you could be requiring the state of Missouri to pay you for a change.
