Unclaimed Money Laws
State and federal laws require companies to report unclaimed money and other intangible personal property to the states. This would include lost tax
refunds, stocks, bank accounts, matured life insurance policies and possibly the contents of safety deposit boxes. It may also include such items as
utility deposits, gift certificates that were unused, and many other examples of lost money. For stocks, brokerage houses are normally responsible for
reporting unclaimed or abandoned stock shares. If your ancestor bought shares directly from a company, then that company or its agent should report
them to the state. Shares will be considered abandoned if mail is undeliverable to the recorded address. To search for unclaimed money, you'll need
to get in touch with the appropriate state's Office of Unclaimed Property using the links on this page.
