WHAT IS UNCLAIMED PROPERTY?

The most common types of unclaimed property include:

  • unclaimed wages or commissions
  • certificates of deposit
  • refunds
  • money orders
  • savings and checking accounts
  • insurance proceeds
  • credit balances
  • excess proceeds from foreclosure
  • underlying shares
  • customer deposits or overpayments
  • safe deposit box contents

An account becomes unclaimed property when it has been inactive for an “extended period of time”.  Each state defines the term “extended period of time” differently, and parameters vary widely from state-to-state.  Tens of billions of dollars in unclaimed property are currently held in state-administered funds, and billions more have yet to be escheated (transferred) from government entities, companies, and financial institutions.

Recover your unclaimed property.


Why Didn't I Know About It?

It’s easier than you think to lose track of an asset. That’s why there are billions of dollars in unclaimed property. Here are just a few examples:

  • You relocate and forget to provide a forwarding address.
  • Your name or address is misspelled on an account document.
  • You forget to cash a check or respond to a proxy statement.
  • A former employer makes a clerical error in your name or address.
  • A relative forgot to mention a safe deposit box, a bank account, shares of stock, etc., that you, as the heir, would be entitled to claim.
