Where Is My Property?

Each state has a different schedule for updating the MissingMoney.com database. Some are weekly and some are monthly. Every state removes properties from MissingMoney.com based on claim status, although the rules can vary from state to state.

It is also possible that your property has not yet been turned over to any governmental entity. In this case, you will need to contact the company or organization holding the funds or property. Check back with MissingMoney.com frequently as new records are continually added.

How Do I Find Unclaimed Money?

lostmoney.com is a name-based search engine. If your name is not on the card and not attached in some way to the card account, then you won’t be able to find it here. Your best bet would be to contact the state holding the card balance. That could be the state where the card was sold or the state where the company that issued the card was incorporated. You might be required to have the card’s account number.

Why Do Some Items Have Limited Information
  • By law many States and Provinces cannot reveal the dollar amount of the property they hold, nor can they reveal the last known street address. Some States and Provinces also withhold such information to prevent fraud.
I Have My Name On The Property, How Can I Verify Ownership?

If there is a chance that you could have forgotten some of your money in the past, you could be the owner of unclaimed property. Try to determine if a property item is yours by looking at all of the information displayed in the search results. Did you ever live at the last known address or the last known city and state? Do you recall ever having an account with the holder company displayed? If so, you may be the rightful owner and should consider submitting a claim inquiry. The state will require that you submit documentation to validate that you are the rightful owner. In the process you will work directly with the state and they can help determine if you are entitled to the property.
