Anyone who recognizes property as their own can still claim it, but only up until 5 p.m. on May 17. After that, the property will be auctioned off although the claimants will still be entitled to the proceeds at any time in the future. Potential claimants should email the Department immediately at [email protected] and identify the unclaimed property to be claimed.
In addition to safe deposit contents, unclaimed property includes uncashed payroll checks, savings and checking accounts, and stocks and bonds. Each fall more unclaimed property is turned over to the Department. An online searchable database and claims system makes it easy to check for and claim property. The database is available at ClaimYourCash.org.
