FHA Refund Guide/Unclaimed Money

Check for unclaimed money that may be waiting for you



Unclaimed Money and assets 
Did Grannie leave you an inheritance? Did you move and forget to collect deposit money paid to utility companies? Did you forget about a small bank account that you had in high school? There's money out there just waiting for you to claim, and it's all on the up-and-up and there are no claim or third-party fees to pay!   Check out Unclaimed.org or MissingMoney.com and find out if you have assets to claim.

FHA refund 
Some FHA homeowners are due money back from MIP, or Mortgage Insurance Premiums paid to protect the FHA from the risk of owner default. Many people owed the money are being contacted by third party companies that claim they will obtain the refund for a percentage of the return. Don't give your money away -- get it for free by visiting HUD.gov. Click on "Consumer Info" and then "Get your own HUD mortgage insurance refund - don't pay someone else." Or, call 1-800-697-6967 for assistance.
