Right now, we’re sitting on roughly $9.3 billion worth of unclaimed property, and want to return it to its rightful owner. There is no deadline to claim this money.

Filing a Claim

You may be required to provide documentation when filing your claim. All claim types generally require information such as:

  • A copy of a current photo identification for each claimant
  • A copy of a Social Security card or a tax identification number for each claimant
  • Verification of reported address if different from current address
  • Specific documentation relating to the type of property, such as original passbook cashier’s check, stock certificate, etc.

You may file a claim online if you are the only owner listed for the property and the value is less than $1,000.
