US states all have stashes of unclaimed assets (old bank accounts, lost refunds, safe deposit boxes, etc.) I was executor if an estate. Found $20,000 in unclaimed assets. And $500 for myself.

How bizarre, I went to my state's unclaimed property site and my dad has money there. It's his address and everything. There's no way he'd fill out any forms in order to get that money so I dunno. So funny though, it's like finding out some crazy conspiracy theory is true.

I evidently have a zombie BofA account; the state mailed me a notice about claiming it.

I called BofA to claim it. And failed verification of my identity??

My little brother has money in an unclaimed account. Problem is, he's dead. My father might have been able to get it, but he's dead now too. I guess it'll just remain unclaimed. I don't have copies of either death certificate.

Well, it appears under the right circumstances you can kinda-sorta start a micronation. But it doesn't really count for anything.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Micronation

There are/were apparently a few within the U.S.:
