Locating Unclaimed Property Owners
The Comptroller's Office tries to
locate the rightful owners of stocks, bonds, savings accounts,
security deposits, contents of safe deposit boxes, insurance
proceeds and other valuables which are reported to us as
unclaimed by banks and other financial institutions after
three years. Real property is not included.
The owners or their
legitimate heirs can claim the funds at any time. There is no
statute of limitations. You can search our records online free
of charge in the section below.
Enter the first and last name in the
appropriate boxes below and click on the SUBMIT button. Please
remember that if you file a property claim, you will be
required to submit documentation to verify identity. Good
