Did you ever think that you may have some long lost money in bank accounts that you’ve forgotten about. The Australian Securities and Investments Commission’s (ASIC) MoneySmart website has an unclaimed money search.
There is around $1 billion in lost shares, bank accounts and life insurance.
Unfortunately, when I did a search I couldn’t find anything in my name, which was a little disappointing, but also means I must keep a pretty good tab on where things are.
But, here’s a tip. Run a search with only your surname. You may find relatives that have unclaimed bank accounts and they may just be very grateful for the discovery. I found over $2, 200 sitting there for my brother-in-law and have left a message to let him know… And $5 for my father-in-law and $78 for a client.
Hey, it all adds up! Give it a try here: https://www.moneysmart.gov.au/tools-and-resources/find-unclaimed-money/unclaimed-money-search
Good luck with the search!
