Could some of Australia’s unclaimed money be yours?

Did you know the Australian Securities & Investment Commission (ASIC) holds around $1.1 billion in unclaimed money from lost bank accounts, shares, investments and life insurance policies?

Ever wondered if some of it could be yours!

You can search on ASIC’s MoneySmart website to see if there is any unclaimed money associated to you. It’s easy to search – all you need to do is enter your full name and select “search now”. You can also search for family or friends.

If the search comes up positive, the process to claim depends on the type of unclaimed money. Bank account or life insurance policy claims need to go to the relevant financial institution. Other unclaimed money can be claimed directly from ASIC.

Happy searching
