You know that feeling when you look in the pocket of a coat you haven't worn in a while and find a $10 bill?

Quite some time ago, I had looked in the Unclaimed Property web site from my home town, and found that my mother had 'at least $25' (they don't give the actual amount) from an insurance company when she closed out my old life insurance policy. I printed out the claim form, gave it to her and explained how to claim. I then promptly forgot about it.

Fast forward to today. I went to check on that site (I do it regularly), and saw she never claimed. I printed it out AGAIN and gave her a lecture - it is MORE than $25. Might be $26, might be $500. You won't know until you claim it. Why in the world would you NOT do it?

Anyway, I thought I would check around in the other places we have lived. I looked at Mississippi for Scott and myself. Nothing. I looked in Louisiana for Scott, his dad, his brother, his grandparents, etc. No dice. Then I checked Texas for Scott and myself.

The insurance group from the company I used to work for? I have $250 sitting there. They will take $2.50 out of the total for 'processing' and then send me the check. I printed out the info, gave them the documentation they needed, and am mailing it out.

What a great day when you just FIND $250!!!!!
