INDIANAPOLIS — Monday is the first-ever National Unclaimed Property Day and Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita wants Hoosiers to visit IndianaUnclaimed.gov and search for unclaimed property.
The Office of the Attorney General’s Unclaimed Property Division has millions of dollars of unclaimed property to return to Hoosiers. Searching for property is free and only takes a few minutes.
In 2020, the Office’s Unclaimed Property Division received more than $129 million in property and returned more than $55 million to Hoosiers.
Generally, unclaimed property is defined as a financial asset with no activity by its owner for an extended period. This includes unclaimed wages or commissions, savings and checking accounts, stock dividends, insurance proceeds, credit balances, refunds, money orders, and more.
In most cases, unclaimed property is held by the state for 25 years. After 25 years, the property can no longer be claimed and becomes property of the state.
If you file a claim at IndianaUnclaimed.gov, it may take up to 90 days for your claim to be processed.
