About Us

MissingMoney.com allows visitors to perform comprehensive searches for lost property that has been turned over to state governments. It is the only unclaimed property site endorsed by the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators (NAUPA) .

MissingMoney.com started in 1999 as a way to help state governments gather and track lost property such as uncashed paychecks, stocks and bonds, and safe deposit box contents. Now the majority of states supports the site by submitting their data and advocating for its claim verification and payment processes. More than $3 billion in unclaimed property was returned to rightful owners by states in 2015.

MissingMoney.com is operated by Avenu Insights & Analytics, which helps state and local governments adapt to the changing needs for information management and their impact on service delivery.
