IRD's Latest Unclaimed Money List

The IRD has put together an alphabetical list of 18,500 people owned $21 million unclaimed cash. The site is easily accessed and is in alphabetical order: 

Just go to www.ird.govt.nz/unclaimed-money if you think they may have some of your money?

There is another huge list (still in paper form) of $57 million owed to 193,000 people from pre-2005, and not is accessible online.
