RM3 billion in unclaimed cash is a BIG sum. Whether the money is at the banks, the EPF or other depositories, the amount is quite alarming.
It either reflects of carelessness, unawareness or selfishness or depositors to name their next of kin or whoever as their inheritors (read h e r e).
Such an amount can finance quite a number of government projects like schools, hospitals and others for the rakyat.
Lets open up our eyes and mind on this.
However, there were cases where inheritors found it not easy to make claims on behalf of the deads. Some took a few years although their names really appeared on the documents.
The government should also look into this.
Money doesnt come that easy anymore...
