There are thousands of cases where employees who were participants in an employer sponsored retirement plan (i.e. 401(K) Plan, Profit Sharing Plan) have terminated their employment and haven’t taken their money in cash or moved it into another retirement account after leaving the company. Often employers can no longer locate former employees in order to pay them out, leaving a pocketful of unclaimed funds.
All you have to do is go to http://www.unclaimedretirementbenefits.com and input your Social Security Number. If the Plan has filed with the Department of Labor (which is what it is required to do) your vested amount.. the money is yours.

To access your unclaimed funds, simply enter your Social Security number on the Search page and search our database for any nationwide matches.

You will then be asked to provide your current contact information so that this employer may contact you about your found money and make arrangements to have you paid out. Once you enter your contact information, an email will be automatically sent to the employer(s) with your new contact information notifying them that you are interested in obtaining your money. They will then send you benefit election forms that you can fill out to instruct your former employer what to do with your money.

A missing participant is an individual who has an account balance or accrued benefit under a qualified plan and has terminated his/her employment with the plan sponsor; but has failed to provide the employer or third party administrator with a current or forwarding address. Thus, a Missing Participant IRA is an IRA account set up on behalf of the missing participant in order to preserve his/her retirement assets until they are claimed by the participant or his/her estate.
