    So A co Worker of mine gets on this site http://www.oregon.gov/DSL every few months and checks for unclaimed property of people he knows to see if their name pops up. Well He did mine and i came up it says: This asset has a cash Value of over $50, and the Property type is: Claim Check Proceeds.... Iv honestly never heard of this but people i talk to have so yea.. Im all for sending in the info needed to get my "unclaimed property" whatever is may be But it asks for a photocopy of my Drivers license and of my SSC card, which I do not really want to sent my SS# through the mail for any one to steal. So I was just thinking about filling it all out and driving it up to their office in Salem.

    Can Someone shed some light on this for me:confused:

    Go there. I did it a while back and filled out the info and got like 65 bucks in the mail a week later. It's just money you had in an old 401k or in some deposit somewhere. I dont remember having to fill in my SS # but maybe I did, I cant remember.

    I deal w/ these guys occasionally, and yes, thats the process. ****, if its over $50, its gonna be worth the drive from Albany!

    Hey Thanks for the info. I just checked my fathers name he died last year and there were 3 unclaimed moneys. so i passed the info onto my stepmother hoping this gives here some extra cash.

    you should call them first...I don't think they have alot of ppl working in that area, and I do know they are out alot going to financial institutions claiming assets of individuals w/ no know heirs.
