Search for Unclaimed Property
Start searching for unclaimed property by entering the first and last name that you would like to search for in the box above.
If you believe you have unclaimed property, then you can perform state searches to try to find it. It doesn’t matter if you no longer live in that particular state or it has been several years since you even thought of the property or cash. Even if you don’t think there is any type of unclaimed property or cash out there, you can still perform the searches to check. You never know if a relative has willed you property or cash and you were never contacted about it.
More than $35 billion Available
The U.S. Federal and state governments combined currently hold more than $35 billion in unclaimed money and property. The good news is that some of it may be yours.
Every U.S. state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, British Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Alberta and Quebec, Canada all have unclaimed programs that work to actively locate the owners of unclaimed property and assets that have either been forgotten or left in the name of someone who is already deceased. For example, according to The National Unclaimed Property Database (NUPD), a Boston man recovered 1000 shares of stock valued at $4 million. Most do not have lost money or stock may quite as valuable, but totals add up in a hurry and could total anywhere from $100 to thousands.
