    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!

Surely you could get some decent counterfeit notes , leave em in soil etc and then get them reimbursed ? No way to prove they are fake because the indicators will be damaged ?

This is one of the major weaknesses of paper currency. Not an issue for most folks with easy banking access, but to hundred of millions around the world who are unbanked (and another XX million folks who prefer that the bulk of their cash assets go untaxed), bitcoin and cryptocurrencies solves this issue nicely.

I remember not long after polymers were brought out in Canada, someone who had been storing their cash in a can near the heater had continued doing that with the polymers. Which ended up resulting in the polymers melting together. He got reimbursed for it.

+Eliza Peek I've sent bills through the wash for hours and they come out completely fine. They aren't made from paper, it's cotton fabric, my dude. Plastic is only better for anti-counterfeit but it's already basically impossible to counterfeit. I prefer paper personally

+Voltaire yes we are, who do you think pays the workers who do this? It's a free service, so the person who wrecked their money is not paying. And unless you think all of the workers who are counting the damaged bills are working without pay out of the goodness of their hearts, that money has to come from somewhere. It is a government program, so it is payed for in taxes.
