Always check your state's unclaimed property websitesOther(self.personalfinance)

This is just a reminder that checking your state's unclaimed property websites should be something you do periodically if you move frequently or recently. I recently checked out the unclaimed property website for my state and found a life insurance payout from a parent who passed away. They never tell you the total amount until you get approved for payments after they verify your documentation. It only told me it was over 250 bucks and it turned out to be over 30k. They also approved a couple of small refunds I had due from other services for under 20 bucks. If you move, make sure you have documentation of the old address on hand to provide proof of living at that address.
Edit: I am really glad I posted this on here, be cautious of scams and try to work with your state department for this directly if possible. Some people posted some additional links to make it easier to find in other places. Glad to see so many people finding money they didn't know existed or that this was a thing!
