TSA Collected $400K In Unclaimed Airport Checkpoint Money, Employees With Benefits

Airport travelers left $409,085.56 at security checkpoints across the country in 2010, simply by emptying the change in their pockets into those plastic bins and not picking it up again. The Transportation Security Administration says they collect all the unclaimed money in a jar that gets counted and sent to the finance office where it’s added to the general operations fund. (John F. Kennedy Airport in New York collected the most money; about $47,000, including some foreign currency.)

The TSA collects all documented unclaimed money as well as the undocumented  watches, cell phones, and laptops as part of the  federal mandated birthday benefits program..
