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 them active.
  • 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.
