Since 1995, Thomas Lauth, the owner of Lauth Investigations International (LII), has been helping families find closure and justice. Over the years, he’s helped many of them throughout the country solve homicide and missing person cases. However, his firm is not limited to tackling crime-related cases.
Along with serving as dedicated investigators, Lauth’s team has been ensuring the 58 billion dollars in lost assets or unclaimed funds held by state treasurers is returned to their rightful owners and heirs. Lost or abandoned assets, refers to savings and checking accounts, un-cashed dividends, payroll checks, refunds, trust distributions, insurance payments and more.
One in 10 Americans has unclaimed property. Worse, each state combined has only returned 5% of the unclaimed property to the rightful owners since 2006. Whether states are short-handed due to budget cuts, or simply not conducting strong enough public awareness campaigns, the fact is, the system is not working for those who could use the funds.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics household survey the current Unemployment Rate as of February 2014, is 6.7%. That equates to 10,459,000 Americans out of work and deeper in debt. How do returning lost assets affect the economy?
“First, communities and the economy as a whole are impacted positively when spending occurs in communities”, says Lauth. “The best part is, on average, each claim we return to an individual or heir we have located averages 5-10k, and for struggling families, this is a great influx of cash and could mean paying a mortgage and merely feeding your family.”
We have all heard the arguments on national news and between politicians about the cause of unemployment, those on welfare taking advantage of the system but the fact is more and more middle-class Americans, those with long-term professional backgrounds have found themselves using food stamps and wondering how they will pay the rent.
Thomas and his wife Rain Lauth, a former industrial engineer, manage the Lost Asset Division at Lauth Investigations and both had primarily provided investigative services to corporations, attorneys, insurance companies, and the public. Lauth has been most recognized in missing person and homicide cases but found he could utilize his expertise to find owners and heirs to unclaimed property.
Both community-minded individuals, Thomas and Rain recognized an opportunity to expand their firm while really “giving back” in multiple ways. The Lost Asset Division is returning money that rightfully belongs to the owner but the division is also providing job opportunities throughout the country.
From the single mother trying to make ends meet, to a married former Administrator wanting to spend more time with her children, an Army veteran with a degree in Political Science, to a “solutions oriented” business man with thirty-years working with government, all Claim Researchers now have a new job opportunity with training that provides them the freedom to work from home. All the researchers state how “life changing” and motivational it is to receive a call or a letter from a client thanking them for helping improve their lives. Here are just a few testimonials.
Claim Researchers conduct genealogy, contact families, and heirs nationwide and assist individuals in utilizing the proper legal format to submit to the holding state, and help prepare required documents to register and defend their claim for settlement. Claim Researchers throughout the country that join Lauth’s team receive extensive training and focused on providing personal service, while Lauth HQ utilizes a support team which assists the Claim Researchers 24 hours.
“We are now expanding our outreach offering jobs to veterans and disabled individuals”, says Lauth. “People can contact us directly for job opportunities but we are asking local and national nonprofits and government agencies who are committed to making a difference in the lives of others to contact us so we may work together to address multiple segments of the population that desperately need support. Yes, this is a call to action!”
