Comments: The State of Delaware is in the process of transitioning its various banking services to J.P. Morgan Chase (JPMC). The Office of Unclaimed Property (OUP) is one of the first agencies to participate in this transition. As a result, the payment instructions for wire and ACH payments have changed. Although the “old” instructions are still operational for the time being, we do want to make sure that holders are aware of the change and are able to transition to the new payment instructions as soon as possible. For fraud prevention concerns, we unfortunately will not post the account and routing information to our public website, but we will readily provide this information upon request to holders and service providers. Email (preferred): DOF_holderreceiptsquestions@delaware.gov; or Phone: (302) 577-8782, option #3
