Protecting Your Money
How do you prevent your money from becoming abandoned?
- When you move, officially change your
address with the United States Postal Service or your local
post office. This will ensure any checks, rebates
or financial correspondence will be forwarded
to your new address.
- Keep a current list of all open bank accounts
and check in on them once a year to keep
- If you leave a job, confirm with your employer
that your current address is on file for any
additional payroll or reimbursement checks.
- If you have a safe deposit box or oil and gas
royalties, make sure it is listed in your estate
and/or make someone aware of the property.
