WASHINGTON - OCTOBER 14: The words "In God We Trust" are seen on U.S. currency October 14, 2004 in Washington, DC. Although the U.S. constitution prohibits an official state religion, references to God appear on American money, the U.S. Congress starts its daily session with a prayer, and the same U.S. Supreme Court that has consistently struck down organized prayer in public schools as unconstitutional opens its public sessions by asking for the blessings of God. The Supreme Court will soon use cases from Kentucky and Texas to consider the constitutionality of Ten Commandments displays on government property, addressing a church-state issue that has ignited controversy around the country.

This story comes straight from Country 1037’s Captian Jim and I love it! I check mine and sadly I got $0. But Captain collected a total of $135.61 that he didn’t know was even out there!

Is the state holding your unclaimed money? I’m not sure where my wife heard about it, but a few months ago, she searched for unclaimed property on a state-sponsored website. I thought it was a bogus phishing scam, but I was wrong. Her search turned up about $35 that she was owed from an insurance rate adjustment several years ago. Then she checked my name.

It took several weeks, but I got an email from the state treasurer’s office saying I was due $0.05 and $0.29 refunds from Allstate Insurance, $4.34 from Mecklenburg County, and $130.93 from a previous employer in 1997. Total: $135.61.
