Finding your Alabama unclaimed money is easy because the state of Alabama maintains a database that will help you find your money. To find your money you start by filling out a little information. Here is a short tutorial to help you find your state of Alabama unclaimed property.
Tutorial on Finding Your Alabama Unclaimed Property
The site in which you claim your money is called "Money Quest Alabama" and at the top left you put in some info.
You put in your last name or business name. Your first name and the city you think that will help you find your money is optional. Enter as much info as possible to help narrow your search. Once you have your info entered click on "search now."
It will then come back with a list that is relevant to your search.
Check the box to the corresponding record that matches your search.
You then have two options...
The first option is you fill out a short form then print out a hard copy (printer needed) to send in a physical claimant request to the Unclaimed Property Division of Alabama. They then ask you to allow 6 to 8 weeks for claim verification and processing.
The second option is to register with the Unclaimed Property Division of Alabama. There is no charge to do this. To register you must choose a username and password and fill out some personal information. Registering on the site enables you to view your claim online instantly. You then will have a permanent login to use on the site later to see if your claim has been sent or if you have more money to claim.
The second option would, of course, be the more efficient way of claiming your property. Not only will it be more convenient but you would know the status of your claim sooner.
