TSA collects $400,000 in loose change annually

TSA collects $400,000 in loose change annuallyThe Transportation Security Administration says they’ve collected about $400,000 in abandoned change from passengers emptying their pockets through security checkpoints.

Unclaimed money is documented and turned into the TSA financial office. The airport receiving the most change from the TSA was New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport whose passengers in 2010 abandoned $46,918.06.

This puts my change jar to shame.
