WHAT IS UNCLAIMED PROPERTY?

Unclaimed Property is any asset that has remained unclaimed for a specific period of time, such as utility deposits, unredeemed stock, a check that was never cashed, or contents of a safe deposit box.

DO YOU HAVE UNCLAIMED PROPERTY?

Property is reported as unclaimed after a certain period of dormancy or lack of activity. There are many reasons you may lose track of your property but the most common reasons are changing jobs, moving, or the death of a close family member.
