Reporting Resources

Holders of Unclaimed Property include business associations, banking and financial organizations, life insurance corporations, and other entities holding property belonging to another person. By law, holders are required to review their records each year to determine if they hold any property, whether tangible or intangible, that has remained unclaimed for the required dormancy period. Once property has remained unclaimed for the required dormancy period, it becomes reportable.
