Unformatted text preview: Peter Bielagus also gave us some pretty interesting websites in his presentation. The one I was most excited to check out was unclaimed.org. Sometimes if a company owes you money instead of attempting to track you down, they will hand your money over to the state. You can go this site and type your name in to see if you or your family has any unclaimed funds. Even though I did not have any money to claim, I still want to remember to check this site fairly regularly just in case. Two more great websites he gave us were annualcreditreport.com and creditkarma.com. I did not know this, but ever since you’re eighteen and a half years old, you will have a credit report. Even if you are like me and have never borrowed money or had to make payments on anything, you still should check your report at least annually. Sometimes there can be mistakes on it that are not your fault! This is another thing I’m definitely going to be keeping up with after seeing this presentation....
