Trying to settle an estate can be very
difficult if you aren't sure where all the bank accounts are, or even if the
person owned stock or a safety deposit box. Every state has an office that
collects money that has been abandoned, forgotten, or left Unclaimed, including:
- Savings and checking account
- Uncashed payroll or cashiers checks
- Money orders and travelers checks
- Certificates of deposit
- Paid up life insurance policies
- Health and accident insurance payments
- Stock and dividends and much more
According to reports, state agencies across
the U.S. may be holding over $8 billion dollars in abandoned money. Although
rules vary from state to state, generally after two or more years without
activity on an account, the bank will try to contact you.
If their efforts fail, the
property is considered abandoned and transferred to the state of your last known
address. To locate funds, contact the unclaimed property office in the state
(usually part of the state treasurer's department) where you or your benefactors
have lived or conducted business. Most state agencies have Web sites and many
have searchable databases. You can contact the National Association of Unclaimed
Property Administrators, P.O. Box 7156, Bismarck, ND 58507
