The state of North Carolina is filled with smiling faces, friendly people and natural beauty, but living here is not an inexpensive thing to do. If you are struggling to make ends meet and looking for extra cash, you may be surprised to find that you have extra money coming your way.
Like other states, the state of North Carolina maintains a detailed and easily searchable database of unclaimed property, and finding that cash is as simple as going online and typing in some basic information. Here are the steps you need to follow to find your missing funds and put them back in your wallet.
1.Start your search by going to the official website of the unclaimed property division of the state of North Carolina. The URL for the website is, appropriately enough, nccash.com
2.Click the Search Now button in the middle of the home page.
3.Complete the simple search form. You will need to provide your first and last name to conduct an individual search. If you are searching for unclaimed property for your business, you can simply enter your business name in the last name field.
4.If you want to narrow the search you can also provide the name of the city where you live or a city where you used to live. This can be especially useful if you have a common last name like Jones or Smith.
5.Review the list of results for the property you think may be yours. If you do think you have money coming, you can file a claim right on the website.
6.Provide any additional documentation required to substantiate your claim. Depending on the type of property this additional documentation may or may not be necessary.
7.Wait for your funds to arrive. If you need to check on the status of your claim and the anticipated timeline you can do so at the same nccash.com website.
There are many reasons why North Carolina residents would lose track of their property and have it end up in the statewide database. When bank accounts go dormant and the account holders cannot be contacted, the funds are turned over to the state. When heirs to insurance proceeds or other property cannot be found within a reasonable period of time those funds could end up in the database as well. But no matter what the reason, the unclaimed property database has been designed to reunite those missing funds with their rightful owners, and now that you know how to claim it there is no reason to wait a second longer.
