from NBC News-
Washington, DC - Millions of dollars are waiting for some Americans.
According to the Department of Veteran's Affairs, there are millions of dollars for vets and their families that are sitting unclaimed.
The money is for the most part life insurance policy payouts, or dividend checks and premium refunds that were mailed to policy holders.
If payments can't be made, the money's held indefinitely.
To see if you or a family member has any unclaimed money, check the veteran's affairs website at https://insurance.va.gov/liability/ufsearch.htm.
You'll need the veteran's full name, date of birth and death, if deceased.
