TreasuryHunt.gov – How to safely search for lost money!

Today I noticed that there were a lot of searches for TreasuryHunt.gov on Google, so I decided to check out what all the fuss was about.  Treasuryhunt.gov drops you off in a specific section of the Bureau of the Public Dept website where you can read all about how to find lost funds, bonds, tax returns, and more.  If you want to jump right into the action, scroll to the bottom of the screen and click the link.  You’ll then be brought to a basic page asking for your Social Security number.  Type in your Social Security or Employee Identification number to search a database of bonds.

The first thing I asked was “Is treasuryhunt.gov a safe website?”  After performing numerous searches and doing some research I have determined that this is in fact a U.S. government run website that is safe to buy bonds and search records.  So, have no fear- go ahead and plug in that Social Security number to see if you are the proud owner of lost U.S. bonds!

As I write this I am entering my SS number to see what turns up.  Nothing for me!  Try it yourself though, the older you are the more likely it is that you have some cold hard cash waiting for you.

Good luck!
