Wisconsin Department of Revenue Unclaimed Property Site
Go there and search the database by name. I know one guy who was alerted to unclaimed property in his deceased parents' name by his ex-sister-in-law. He checked the site, Sure enough, there was money there from his father's life insurance company: $3,200. He put in a claim. There was a lot of waiting. A couple of times, the Department of Revenue requested additional information and/or documentation. He checked the status of his claim on the website regularly. He waited and waited. Finally, a little more than three months after he first put in a claim, the Department of Revenue approved his claim.
Talk about free money...
