Who woulda thunk it?

If they ask me for a list of prior residences I'm toast, though. I moved 18 times in six years during my college/grad school experiences. Plus I had a PO Box in there somewhere. No way can I remember all those addresses.
Good luck, Urchina!!

In my state, they listed the address in the unclaimed property listing. I thought I would have to prove that I lived there, and came "armed" with all sorts of proof, but they didn't even look at it.

They didn't even care about the misspelling of my first name (I have an unusual spelling and the unclaimed property listing had the conventional spelling).

All they cared about was my social security number.

A couple of years ago (I may have posted it here) DW did the same and turned up $1700, IIRC. Turns out a malpractice carrier had over-charged doctors in Wisconsin and a class action settlement led to the payout. They didn't have my current address.
