The title of this post is not meant to pose a rhetorical question, nor is it meant to invite commentary about taxes.
A while back Treasurer Grossman visited Community Teamwork with a focus on our financial literacy programs. One of the questions he posed, particularly as it related to the households we work with is if we routinely suggested that our clients check out the Massachusetts Unclaimed Property list to see if their names were on it.
Honestly? We hadn’t done that here in the Resource Center. We set about to correct that. Within minutes, having started with just one short program list, we produced 5 matches. One client already has two claims being processed.
Moving forward, an unclaimed property query will become a part of our screening processes here in the Resource Center.
If you haven’t checked, what are you waiting for? Give it a try!
