There is over $240 million worth of unclaimed property in Iowa, and some of it could be yours.

Unclaimed property, meaning abandoned assets from old checking accounts, life insurance payouts, lost checks, unpaid wages and many other sources, is just sitting out there waiting to be collected.

It's at least worth a look to see if you're owed anything. The State Treasurer has a website called the Great Iowa Treasure Hunt for checking unclaimed property. It's completely free, and all you have to do is enter your name or business. Check it out here.

I had several Iowa natives search their names and each one of them was on the list. Even if you're not owed much, it would still be cash in your pocket that you never realized you had.
