Missing money? $58 billion in unclaimed cash


(CNN) -- There is roughly 58-billion dollars in unclaimed money and property sitting in treasuries all over the country.

The National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators says most is held by states.

These funds come from forgotten bank accounts, stock holdings, pensions and life insurance payouts.

It's worth a look at the online databases.

One person in Connecticut claimed nearly $33 million from an old stock sale.
