Mutilated Money? This Place Will Give You a Fresh Stack

  • Published on Jul 2, 2018
  • Let’s set the scene: you’ve just discovered your pup chewed away at your entire life savings. Or, last month’s rent was suddenly burned to a crisp after being left in the oven. Bizarre mistakes happen, but what can you do? Submit a claim over to the U.S. Department of Treasury where Eric Walsh, assistant manager of the Mutilated Currency Division, will examine and reimburse you for your damaged stacks. Cheers!

      InPics States, you must submit more than half of the paper bill intact. This is in part to prevent people from ripping money in half and replacing both halves.

    TMI about the money in the cow's stomach, though it makes sense if you really think about it. We normally shove money into "piggy banks", which is kind of like shoving it into a cow's stomach.
