In “Health Law Impact”
[Opinion], Rep. Eric Cantor
warns AARP members that
under the new health care
law costs will go up. Isn’t this

COURTESY BROWN FAMILY
Sid Kirchheimer is 100 percent correct in encouraging every-
one to check for their “missing” money online or by calling
their state or city treasury [“Your ‘Missing’ Money Awaits
You,” In the News].
Two years ago I checked the
websites he cited and found a
substantial amount of money in
my deceased father’s name that
had been deposited with the Dis-
trict of Columbia by a life insur-

from a policy that his mother
had taken out on him in 1914 (of
which he had no knowledge).
My father had always imagined
himself an avid fisherman but
never realized his dream of owning a boat. The proceeds
helped his grandson, Chris (whom he never met), buy the
bass boat his grandfather would have loved.
