Is the State of California
holding your money ?
According to the Secretary of State website, the State of California is currently holding $6.1 billion dollars in unclaimed property that belongs to 17.6 million different people and organizations. Are you one of those 17.6 million people?
The State of Calfornia holds unclaimed property, so called 'abandoned property' that is turned over to the state by banks, insurance companies, corporations, and employees who are unable to find the owner of the property. The most common occurrences of abandoned property occur when a bank account has had no activity for three years or the rental fee on a safety deposit box has not been paid for several years and the owner cannot be located.
Abondoned property can also include uncashed paychecks, unclaimed refunds, stock dividends, forgotten pension benefits, and refunded insurance premiums or payouts. Abandoned property can also include jewelry, coins, collectibles and other valuable assets found in safety deposit boxes.
Finally, unclaimed property can occur when a person dies without a named beneficiary on an account and their heirs may have no knowledge of the account or safety deposit box.
Unclaimed property is held by the state until claimed or surrendered so you may be able to claim the property for an heir who has already died.
