What is Unclaimed Property?
Money and other assets are considered lost or unclaimed when the property owner cannot be located after a specified period of time.
Holders that are in possession of property that is unclaimed, report and remit the assets to government unclaimed property programs on an annual basis.
Government unclaimed property programs act in a custodial manner for the safekeeping of unclaimed property until the owner is located, and the property is returned.
Rightful owners of unclaimed property can claim their money and other assets directly from government unclaimed property programs.
