NSW residents are being encouraged to check whether they are owed any of the millions of dollars waiting to be claimed from the state government.

More than $146 million in 'forgotten money' is sitting with Revenue NSW, including money from share dividends, trust accounts, deceased estates, overpayments and a range of other sources.

The value ranges from $20 in share dividends to a trust fund worth more than $1 million.

Revenue NSW holds more than 414,000 unclaimed items from private companies, State Trustees, local councils and government agencies that can't be returned to owners because their contact details are out of date and they cannot be tracked down.

"Cost of living is a major issue facing families and households across the State, which is why we want people to check their eligibility," said Minister for Finance and Small Business Damien Tudehope.

"It only takes a few minutes and you could walk away with extra money in your pocket.

"Finding out if you are eligible is quick and simple. If you enter your name into the free search tool on the Revenue NSW website you can see if you have an eligible claim.

If you do have a claim, notify Revenue NSW and collect your money."

Alternatively you can make an appointment at your nearest Service NSW centre with a cost of living specialist to check your eligibility for any unclaimed money.

The NSW Government will hold the money indefinitely until it is claimed.
