The National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators (NAUPA) makes it easy for you to find unclaimed property by giving you direct access to all of the states’ unclaimed property websites. To see if you have any unclaimed property, go to (a NAUPA-sponsored site). You can select your state from the map and then you will be forwarded to your state’s official website for unclaimed property where you can perform your search. If you would like to search more than one state at one time, you can go to

Unclaimed property are any assets that have been lost or forgotten by its owner for a long period of time. They are usually accounts in financial institutions and companies that have had no activity or contact with the owner for more than one year. Examples of unclaimed property can include:

  • Annuities
  • Certificates of deposits
  • Checking or saving accounts
  • Contents of safe deposit boxes
  • Insurance payments or refunds
  • Life insurance policies
  • Money orders
  • Payroll checks
  • Stocks or any uncashed dividends

How can I get help?

To find out if you have unclaimed property, go to and select the state you would like to search. You will be forwarded to the website of your state’s official administrator (usually the state treasurer or other official) who oversees and keeps records of unclaimed property.
