Check for unclaimed money, says Crouch
Member for Terrigal Mr Adam Crouch is urging residents check whether Revenue NSW was holding money that was due to them.
He said Revenue NSW was holding almost $4.4 million of unclaimed money which belongs to people in the Central Coast local government area.
"This isn't the government's money. It belongs to people in our community and I encourage everyone to check whether they can claim back any money," he said.
He the money was typically not refunded to the owner because their contact details were out of date and they could not be tracked down.
"Typically, this includes share dividends, trust accounts, refunds, commissions, deceased estates and money from a range of other sources.
"Unclaimed money is held indefinitely until it is claimed, and it only takes a few minutes to check."
