Older people living across the Goulburn electorate are encouraged to check for any unclaimed money owed to them by using Revenue NSW’s online unclaimed money service.

Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman said anyone can check for unclaimed money on the Revenue NSW website.

“It is a free service offered by the NSW Government to get money back in the hands of its owners,” Mrs Tuckerman said.

“The forgotten money held by Revenue NSW includes share dividends, trust accounts, refunds, commissions, deceased estates and money from a range of other sources.

“Claiming money can ease the cost-of-living pressures seniors might be feeling by ensuring they receive what is rightfully theirs. It is as easy as submitting a claim online.”

The Unclaimed Money register is a caretaker account within Revenue NSW for money which has not made it to the correct owner for any number of reasons including a change of address or name, misplaced paperwork or it has simply been forgotten.

Revenue NSW periodically carries out data matching activities and attempts to contact potential owners of new items received from enterprises.
