States and federal agencies are holding billions of dollars in unclaimed property and missing money. Unclaimed property statutes consider financial assets to be abandoned when contact with the owner is lost.
This frequently occurs following an unreported address change or expiration of a postal forwarding order, a name change after marriage or divorce, and after the untimely death of a family member who passed without an updated will.
When owners or heirs fail to claim the money over a specified period of time known as the dormancy period, holders - including banks, brokers, employers and life insurance companies - transfer the funds to a government trust account in a legal process known as escheat.
Here this money awaits your claim, along with billions of unclaimed dollars held by government agencies themselves - including $17 billion in unredeemed savings bonds, $92 million in undelivered IRS tax refunds, and hundreds of billions of dollars in unclaimed retirement and social security checks and entitlements.
It is important that you make a proactive effort to claim this money, as most holders of unclaimed funds make little effort to locate lost owners and heirs. Most - but not all - claims can be made in perpetuity, so prompt action is advised.
