Personal finances are vulnerable, and every so often they transform into lost money and become buried in the sea of unclaimed assets. It happens for an array of reasons, but the main causes tend to be unreported changes of address, ceases in activity on your account and inadequate record keeping. Without you knowing, it could be happening to you right now. So wouldn’t it be worth checking if you have missing funds owed to you?

The riches of lost money have been accumulating for decades and are constantly increasing. If you decide to search independently, you have a chance of hunting down your unclaimed wealth. But Monimine is available to all and won’t cost you a penny, even to the cheekiest of pirates.

* Monimine will not ask for financial information at any stage.

UK government to use £330m from dormant accounts to combat homelessness

UK government to use £330m from dormant accounts to combat homelessness

Millions of pounds from dormant bank and building society accounts have been earmarked to tackle homelessness and aid vulnerable young people in England. This action has been taken by the government to create a “fairer society.”

dormant accounts money to help homeless

Tracey Crouch, minister for sport and civil society says that the money will help to make a real difference.

“This is part of the government’s commitment to building a fairer society and tackling the social injustices that hold people back from achieving their full potential.” 

The unclaimed money will be taken from personal financial accounts that have been inactive and untouched for at least 15 years. Financial institutions will have unsuccessfully attempted to trace the owners of these accounts and contact will have been lost.

Using financial assets from UK dormant accounts to fund charitable causes was first demonstrated in 2008. The Dormant Bank and Building Society Accounts Act was passed in 2008 under Gordon Brown. This law authorised, ‘the distribution of assets from cash accounts that have been inactive for fifteen years.’ 

Over the next four years, £135m has been allocated for homeless housing initiatives and on social enterprises and local charities. An additional £90m is promised to help disadvantaged young people into employment. Whilst a further £55m will be spent on tackling problem debt and aiding ‘financial inclusion initiatives.’

The remaining £50m has been designated to the developed administrations of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Good News

If you think that you may have lost contact with one of your financial accounts, you don’t have to worry. Although this money may be put towards homeless initiatives, you are still able to reclaim any money which is rightfully yours.

The Reclaim Fund are the organisation that is used to recover money from dormant UK accounts. Their chief executive, Adrian Smith said;

We will continue to work hard in ensuring that consumers can at any time reclaim money owed from their dormant accounts while working with the government to deliver further funds for good causes.”

The Reclaim Fund are required to retain a chunk of their money in order to repay any account holders who come forward to claim their cash.

If you are interested in discovering whether you are owed any unclaimed money from a dormant account, we can help. By registering for FREE at monimine.com, we can help you determine whether you are the owner of any outstanding assets.

Recovering lost money for a relative suffering from dementia

Recovering lost money for a relative suffering from dementia

Managing a relative, when they are enduring the hardships of dementia is not easy. They may struggle maintaining independence and require frequent help and assistance. Common symptoms include memory loss and forgetfulness, which can often result in lost money.

dementia lost money

Misplaced wallets, hidden purses and forgotten pin-codes are just some of the problems. Depending on the severity of their dementia, it could transpire that they have completely forgotten about entire financial accounts or policies from their past.

If no paperwork can be found for the accounts or policies, tracing the assets can become extremely difficult. Unless you already have an idea of where your relative may have held accounts, you will be fumbling in the dark.

By obtaining a power of attorney for your relative, you possess the ability to make decisions on their behalf. This will entitle you to search for any lost money that is owed to your relative.

If you are able to, we would recommend that you ensure a will has been written. If your family member’s dementia becomes serious, they may be unable to write their own will and distribute their estate as they would have wanted.

Monimine can help both you, and your relative from a great deal of stress and inconvenience. By submitting a search for free through Monimine, the records you input will be cross-checked with the lost money data we have sourced from financial institutions. If a match occurs, you will be reunited with the money which is owed.

This unique service prevents the hindrance of guessing where your relative may have held accounts, and the nuisance of having to contact them all individually to retrieve the assets.

If you would like to search for any unclaimed money which you think could be owed to you or your relative, please visit monimine.com.

Finding international unclaimed assets at Monimine.

Finding international unclaimed assets at Monimine.

A few months ago, we received an interesting email. It was from a man who had been residing in South Africa. He had taken out a pension policy over 15 years ago with Norwich Life, which he had since lost connection with and had inherited unclaimed assets from.

finding international unclaimed assets

After unsuccessfully trying to contact his pension provider, he wrote to us, to see if we could help him locate his unclaimed assets. Although it wasn’t our usual field, we were more than happy to respond to Mr Cox and we promised to look into his case.

The pension policy which Mr Cox had held, was from a previous job and he had since forgotten about it. This example shows how easy it can be for money to become lost, and trapped within financial accounts.

Having investigated, Monimine founder, Bruce Cane was able to locate the business. He discovered that Norwich Life had since been sold to a consolidation company. Using thorough research techniques, we discovered where Mr Cox’s policy was now held.

We supplied the name of the business and contact details for the relevant department. Fortunately, Mr Cox was able to reconnect with his policy and was delighted to find a substantial £7,000 of unclaimed assets.

This case illustrates that with the right tools and knowledge, lost money can be recovered from closed businesses and dormant accounts. Even though the policy was situated outside of the UK, Monimine were still able to locate it and reconnect the holder with their money.

Mr Cox was elated with the service we had provided for him and wrote this kind testimonial about Monimine.

You’ve probably heard us repeatedly talking about unclaimed assets. But the fact remains that your money is still out there, and it’s waiting to be claimed.

You may think that you can’t have lost money through your personal financial accounts. But it’s easier than you think for unclaimed assets to become trapped within your accounts and policies. A male user from Money Saving Expert, was fortunate enough to discover £39,000 in an old pension policy.

Without even knowing it, you could be sitting on a large pile of your own lost assets. The windfall could relate to a family member, of which you are the beneficiary.

The mystery of dormant accounts explained …

The mystery of dormant accounts explained …

dormant accounts explained

You’ve probably heard Monimine repeatedly talking about dormant accounts. But what exactly is a dormant account, and can any financial account potentially become dormant?

Natwest deem an account dormant and no longer live, if it has been inactive for five years or more.

Why do banks change accounts to dormant?  

It is a prevention method. If the owner is not seen to be paying attention to the contents of their account, it can become vulnerable to fraud.

What happens when the account becomes dormant?

The bank will attempt to contact the customer, to notify them that their account is being suspended.

So why is there a problem?

Numerous banks will send a singular letter, and if the customer has moved address, they may never receive notification.

Other hiccups

Once a bank has announced an account dormant, it’s removed from central databases. If you then try to ring up the bank and enquire about your account, the call centre staff will be unable to view it on their system.

What happens if the account holder is deceased?

A large number of dormant accounts belong to holders who have passed away. If an inadequate probate administration failed to trace these accounts, it’s very possible that they may never be claimed.

Can family relations not claim the accounts?

If an account continues to be dormant for at least 15 years, the financial contents are passed on to the government’s unclaimed assets scheme. Where the funds are used for charitable causes.

Is the money then lost forever?

The good news is that, even if the money has been passed on to the unclaimed assets scheme, the account holder is still able to reclaim the assets at any time.

Monimine has been established to help deal with the difficulties surrounding dormant accounts. Members of the public are able to conduct a search for any lost assets, which may belong to them or a member of their family, for free. All they are required to do, is to input a short family history, and if a match is found, Monimine can reunite you with any outstanding money which is owed to you.

Probate, like herding cats? No longer.

Here’s a challenge for you…

Write your Will. (morbid I know)

Now instead of writing vaguely about your estate, try and define everything you own, then divvy it out.

Tough, isn’t it? Have you remembered your stocks & shares? life assurance? All your pension pots?

Typically, most people write about jewellery in more detail than they do their financial assets. Now think, if you can’t remember where your accounts are, how do you expect someone else to? I know, for my father, I have absolutely no idea what he owns, or where. It’s just not dinner-time entertainment talk (see also ‘Very British Problems’). So, usually, we never find out until the day comes when you must shuffle through desk draws finding pieces of paper and following the trails like a never-ending kite string.

How, in any way, is this a 21st century option? Why do I, as a grief stricken individual, have to pull financial accounts as if I were pulling teeth? This is the last thing I want to be doing at that time. Anyone who has been in this position will know what I’m talking about; there are simply other, more important, things to be doing.

What’s more, I’m probably going to miss half of his accounts because:

A.     I don’t know what shares he owns,

B.     I certainly don’t know how his company pension works (I don’t really know if he had pensions from old jobs… maybe?),

C.     And, his savings and/or current accounts might as well be locked in a box-room at the Vatican’s secret archives. I’ve got the same chance of seeing them too.

You know, that’s fine. I’m happy to not know what my his financial situation is, it’s his prerogative tokeep it personal. But, I know he would blow a gasket if it didn’t go where he wanted when his time comes.

As well as being a means to deal with unclaimed assets, Monimine is an incredibly simple way of staying in-touch with your finances. Where an individual moves to a new house, if they securely log into the Monimine system, they can update their address. Monimine will then notify all the relevant institutions about the move, and your accounts should never become dormant again!

Hugely important to us, is to provide a service to those left behind. Where a spouse or family member dies, you can register this with Monimine. Monimine will then verify whether this is true using government registers (getting rid of the fraud issue) and then notify the necessary institutions. We no longer see it suitable for a widower to have to trawl up the high street notifying each institution individually (an incredibly emotionally draining process). I’m sure there will be many out there who agree, this service is hugely beneficial, and long overdue.

If you’re interested, please have a look at our site www.monimine.com, we’re 100% free to the public and will never use your data for anything other than to unite you with your assets, or keep your financial service providers up to date.



Unclaimed assets: How can millennials keep track of their bank accounts?

Unclaimed assets: How can millennials keep track of their bank accounts?

How millennials can keep track of unclaimed assets

As millennials look to boost their bank balance and graduate to the next life stage, whether that’s buying a house, getting married or having children, it is essential they are doing all they can to make the most of their finances. But with pay packets squeezed and the cost of living high, it is also key to protect your money – and this means more than finding a high yielding savings account.

According to Josh Cousens of Monimine, which helps reunite lost financial assets with their owners, there are currently £25 billion of unclaimed assets in the UK.

“A common viewpoint is that lost money won’t affect you until later in life,” says Cousens. But there are several things that you can do now to seal your financial accounts and prevent money from slipping through the cracks.

“Unclaimed assets can materialise in an array of monetary accounts, including premium bonds, bank and building society accounts, stocks and shares, life insurance and pensions, rainy day savings, inheritances and savings and investment accounts.”

So what do millennials need to know about unclaimed money and how can they prevent their money slipping through the cracks?

Ensure you stay contactable

“The biggest issue surrounding unclaimed assets is failing to notify your financial provider when you change address,” Cousens says. “If you don’t state your new address, your correspondence will still be sent to the previous residence, and you won’t be contactable. Any outstanding money that lies within that account will then be considered unclaimed.”

This can be particularly troublesome for students, Cousens believes. “From university, to home, back to university and then to a new city, and it can be very easy to forget to keep your accounts informed of your current address.

“However, making the effort to speak with your financial providers and declaring your new address will pay dividends in the long run, when you still have access to all your money.”

Keep up with pension providers

“Another way people unwittingly lose money is through pension pots,” Cousens tells us. “Statistics published by Equiniti revealed that the average person will have at least six jobs in their lifetime. When an individual starts a new job, it can be easy to forget to notify the pension provider of the new company.

“Many people even take out a new pension and completely forget about the old one. If the provider is unable to contact you and you have forgotten about them, it’s very simple for owed money to become trapped and left unclaimed.”

Cousens recommends keeping a record of each job’s pension provider, to help stay on track.

Keep in touch…wherever you are in the world

“Many millennials embark on gap years abroad, both pre and post university and some even decide to stay abroad for longer periods,” says Cousens. “Amid all the fun and excitement of exploring new continents, keeping in communication with your financial providers at home can be easy to forget. But this is a mistake. It opens the trap door for your accounts to be labelled as dormant, and for money to trickle into the ‘unclaimed’ pot.”

Don’t put off writing a will

Cousens advises millennials to write a will.

“Many people share the belief that writing a will doesn’t need to happen until later on in life,” he says. “Even among older age groups not having a will is common – 78% of adults aged between 30 and 39 haven’t written a will for instance. But without a will, it can be easy to lose track of your finances. By organising your estate at a younger age, your finances will be secure. You’ll be able to decide where your money goes and have the peace of mind of knowing your family will be economically protected.”

Which Spanish cities are British expats choosing to live in?

Which Spanish cities are British expats choosing to live in?

411,000 British expats live on Spanish shores, allured by sunshine, siestas and sandy beaches. Having been a haven for British expatriation since the 1970s, Spain has always attracted UK citizens. Statistics reveal that Spain is the most popular European destination for British emigration.

The slower pace of life, inexpensive living costs and the relative ease of the Spanish language all manage to entice. Whilst a trustworthy healthcare, high life expectancy and the freshest fruit and veg also seduce Brits away from the Isles.

So … which particular Spanish cities are expats moving to, and why?

We have listed the five most favoured Spanish locations for British emigrants:


Barcelona is the capital of the autonomous Catalonia, and is renowned for its Gaudi inspired, ‘modernista’ architecture, stunning beaches and al-fresco lifestyle. Consistently dependable Mediterranean weather, explosions of culture and the cosmopolitan environment have been drawing Brits to the famous coastal city for decades. Barcelona is Spain’s second largest city and houses one of the worlds most exciting football teams. It leads Spanish employment rates and GDP per capita change.


Costa Del Sol

On the Southern edge of Spain, the ‘Coast of the Sun’ encapsulates national history, gastronomic delights and fantastic views – the Northern mountains of Africa can be spotted on a clear summers day. The affluent Marbella has been dubbed the ‘millionaires’ playground,’ and plays host to designer shops and luxury yachts. But elsewhere, the Costa Del Sol offers economical living costs, gorgeous beaches and outstanding local produce. A short drive inland meets traditional, rustic Spain in all its beauty, with whitewashed buildings and orange trees.



Being the third largest city in Europe and the capital of Spain, Madrid has obvious selling points. The beautiful city offers an abundance of opportunities, arguably more inviting for career prospects than retirement, but the city’s embedded Spanish roots appeal to all. Although Madrid doesn’t boast a coastline like its counterparts, the tan-worthy climate is still felt in the city.  Boasting two of Europe’s footballing giants, there is plenty of sporting entertainment in the city. Whilst the perfect juxtaposition of heritage and modern makes Madrid the place to be.


Costa Blanca

British expats have been arriving at the ‘White Coast’ for years, because of the laid back lifestyle, spontaneous ‘fiestas’ and bustling markets. The stretch of coastline is one of Europe’s most visited areas for a good reason – its lively atmosphere is perfect for any ‘socialites’ and the beaches are some of the most popular in the country. Away from the noise and nestled within the metropolitan maze, lies the elegance of classical architecture and old-world Spain.



Sometimes overshadowed by the larger Barcelona and Madrid, people forget about Valencia, Spain’s third largest city that has plenty to offer itself. Weddings of futuristic construction and a characterful old quarter is a magnificent consequence. The Turia Gardens are esteemed for their large open spaces, fountains and plethora of outdoor activities. The perimeter of the park equates to 18km, perfect for bicycle enthusiasts. Valencia is blessed with its own unique culture and brags highly acclaimed nightlife and cuisine, particularly its paella!

Have you left Britain for Spain? Which city did you decide to move to?

Where do UK expats go, and how do they lose unclaimed assets?

Where do UK expats go, and how do they lose unclaimed assets?

why UK expats lose unclaimed assets

Did you know that Great Britain has the eighth highest expatriation levels in the world? A massive 5.5 million Brits live abroad, which is 7.7% of the total UK population. So why do so many British residents pack their bags, where do they tend to move to, and how do they leave unclaimed assets behind?

The Telegraph quoted that at least 400 UK citizens leave the British Isles every day. That’s enough to fill 10 double decker buses … But where are these people going?

Well … a lot of the departing Brits are heading down under, to Australia, with 1.2 million UK citizens living in Oz. According to the expats, the ‘Aussie’ dream appeals for a number of reasons. These include a better quality of life, stunning beaches, warmer climates and the al-fresco lifestyle. For skilled workers, the employment opportunities are another weighty pulling factor, with hefty salary offers.

The North American continent is the next most popular destination for expats. The USA currently houses 701,000 Brits, whilst Canada isn’t far behind with 675,000. Cheaper real estate prices, spectacular scenery and knowing what to expect with the weather are all attractions.

Of course, not all of the expats emigrate across vast oceans to the other side of the world. Spain (411,000 Brits) and Ireland (397,000) are still both very popular locations for Brits to live out their days. These both offer their own individual enticements, which have been drawing people from the UK across Europe.

Below is a complete table of the most popular country’s British citizens have emigrated to:

Country of Residence Number of UK Emigrants
Australia 1,208,000
USA 701,000
Canada 675,000
Spain 411,000
Ireland 397,000
New Zealand 268,000
France 173,000
Germany 155,000


So why are UK expats and emigrants losing unclaimed money?

When an individual or family packs up their home to move abroad, a breakdown in communication is easy to occur. Particularly when in all the excitement of moving, you forget to notify your financial accounts of your change in circumstance.

Financial providers will find it extremely difficult to contact you, because of their traditional methods of communication. It is also very expensive for them to trace people. When you are unable to liaise with your providers, your accounts will become inactive and dormant. Subsequently, this leads to your outstanding assets becoming trapped within these accounts. This is where your unclaimed money comes from.

Monimine utilise an innovative, digital platform and expert researchers, to ensure that we find your unclaimed assets. If you are a UK expatriate and think you might have lost money, start your search today at monimine.com for FREE.  If we match your details with an outstanding asset, we can reunite you with the money that belongs to you.

When There’s A Will, There’s A Way – Particularly With Unclaimed Assets

When There’s A Will, There’s A Way – Particularly With Unclaimed Assets

writing a will good for unclaimed assets

You’ve probably heard this a hundred times, but every year, thousands of adults pass away without writing a will. It may have never affected you or your family, but when it comes to finding unclaimed assets, the lack of a will makes things complicated.

Passing away without a will is also known as intestate.

The idea of writing a will in your thirties or forties may seem morbid, but it’s essential to begin planning early. The advanced preparation ensures that your unclaimed assets go to the right place, and gives you a peace of mind.

If you haven’t written a will, you’re not alone. 78% of adults between the ages of 30-39 don’t have a will, but it’s vital that you become one of the 22% who do.

We’ve compiled five reasons why it’s imperative to put writing a will at the top of your to-do list:

  • You Decide Where Your Money Goes

Without a will, it’s impossible to inform your family about where you want your money to go. Estates from an intestate individual can often end up in the hands of distant relatives, or even the government, opposed to close family and loved ones. Retrieving money back from the state can be a difficult and fruitless task, so why take the risk?

  • You Can Sleep Easy Knowing Your Family Are Financially Secure

Acting early and writing a will guarantees that, even if you die, your family will be financially looked after with the money you left to them. This becomes particularly important if your family are economically dependent on you.

  • It Becomes Easier For Your Family To Organise

Having a will in place will make it a lot easier for your family to organise your affairs and administration. This small act will save them unnecessary distress, during what will already be an incredibly difficult time. By acting now, it will be worth it for your family in the long run.

  • Plan Finances Around Your Will

Thinking ahead allows you to plan your budget around a will. You may wish to cut some costs on your home insurance, or weekly shop, so that you can pay into a savings account for your daughter. Writing a documented will encourages you to become organised with finances, by putting money into the correct accounts. Organisation is never a bad thing.

  • Reduce Inheritance Tax For Surviving Family Members

The families of those who have died intestate end up paying significantly more inheritance tax than those that don’t. Reducing inheritance tax is especially important if you’re planning to leave money to a spouse or partner. If you pass away intestate, they might be forced to pay a hefty inheritance bill, and your assets could end up going to other, distant relatives, rather than them.

Whether you’re in your thirties or your seventies, writing a will is of the utmost importance.

Why Monimine Can Help You Claim Money

Why Monimine Can Help You Claim Money

how monimine help to claim money

If you wanted to find out if you could claim money from a lost asset – would you know where to look?

Here are your current options in the UK:

  • The Unclaimed Assets Register, run by Experian provides a central resource for people searching for dormant accounts, pensions, shares or life policies, or those of a deceased spouse. This register will charge a £25 fixed fee per search.
  • My Lost Account (MLA) was created at the time of the Bank Act to give consumers somewhere to register a request for information as to the possibility of an account with a specific bank. It is not a database, but simply a post-box where emails from consumers are forwarded by MLA to the appropriate bank, who may reply to MLA to forward back to the consumer.

Unlike Monimine, neither of these services are automated and FREE to the consumer. Monimine also assists the financial institutions and ultimately helps customers claim money they are entitled to.

The other services are labour intensive processes, have limited effectiveness and do not address the bulk of gone away accounts in which the consumer is unaware of what they could be entitled to.
