Unclaimed Property

What is Unclaimed Property?

It is sometimes very difficult for banks, credit unions, and even retail stores to find the owner of big chunks of money. The owner can be an individual, an organization, or a state or local government. After five years, financial institutions turn that money over to the state and the Treasury’s Unclaimed Property Division is charged with finding the rightful owner.
