TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – There is up to $12.5 million of forgotten money in just the Terre Haute area alone, that’s according to Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller.

…And some of that money, could belong to you!

Zoeller stopped by Ivy Tech Community College in Terre Haute today to discuss how hoosiers can claim money that belongs to them.

Money left unclaimed is not only in Vigo County, but surrounding Indiana counties as well.

Counties like Clay, Daviess, Greene, Knox, Martin, Parke and Sullivan have thousands of dollars waiting to be claimed.

Where does this forgotten money come from? It can be from investment earnings, insurance proceeds and benefits, wages and even money from checking or savings account.

This does not include abandoned vehicles or real estate.

Making a claim is free and easy. Log on to http://www.IndianaUnclaimed.gov and search your name.

No computer access? You can do it from your phone. The “Indiana Unclaimed” app is available to download.

Zoeller encourages all hoosiers, as well as business owners and charitable organizations, to search their name for forgotten money.
