We could all use a little more cash to pay for our expenses, but, as the age-old saying goes, money doesn’t grow on trees. Unless you win the lottery, money isn’t free — you have to work for it and earn it!
But two months ago, Briana Horger, a mother of three young children, found thousands of dollars while on the job. A woman hired her to clean out the attic of her house. She cleared everything out, but then thought that she had stumbled upon a piece of history: She’d found official-looking papers from the 1960s.
She asked the woman about them, but the woman said she wasn’t interested in anything in the house.
It wasn’t long before Briana discovered that they weren’t just any kind of old papers. They were bearer bonds, and there were dozens of them.
The bearer bonds were issued by the Highland Park, Michigan, school district in 1968, and range from $1,000 to $5,000 each. She can claim about $60,000!
Unlike regular bonds, these aren’t attached to a specific Social Security number. Anyone holding them can claim them.
Briana still needs to assess the amount she could receive from the bonds, but whatever the sum, it’s sure to be a huge help to the mom. She even plans on giving back to the programs that helped her.
