Unclaimed Money Australia – Your Lost Money Found!

Every day, people and businesses leave cash in financial institutions, insurance companies, and with government authorities – only to forget the money. As crazy as it sounds, it happens constantly. Usually the unclaimed funds are lost due to forgetfulness, neglect, or other reasons such as life changes, new career endeavours.

Why have I been contacted by the Lost Money Detectives?

We have contacted you as we believe that you have unclaimed monies owing to you or your organisation, and we need to confirm that you are the rightful owner of these funds.

So What Happens to Unclaimed Money in Australia?

openphotonet_aus-currency2-300x259When a person or company “forgets” about money in various accounts, the lost money is transferred to (in many cases) a non-interest bearing Government Trust Account. Of course, this is only done when the financial Institution cannot locate the owner. When the lost monies are not claimed within a specific period of time, the transfer occurs and the funds become Government Revenue. Sometimes, even the rightful owners of the unclaimed funds are not aware that only a specific period of time exists to grab their unclaimed funds. Imagine that !!

The Problem – To locate all the money that you could be entitled to is not as easy as you think. It can be a minefield. Why? Australia does not have a central governing body that looks after unclaimed money.

bullet On a National basis,  the Commonwealth has a variety of institutions responsible for unclaimed monies; and

bullet On a State by State basis, each State has separate unclaimed money laws (Acts) and various institutions responsible for lost monies unique to that State (with their own set of individual claiming rules and procedures).

If I don’t choose to claim these unclaimed monies what happens then?

That’s a simple answer; the funds will stay (in many cases) in a non – interest bearing account and in essence will remain unclaimed. Worst of all though, depending on what authority holds the funds, each is different, after a certain period the unclaimed fund will be absorbed into the endless pit of ‘consolidated Government Revenue’.  In other words …. the Government gets its, and it’s GONE!!!!.
