By the Numbers: Returning Unclaimed Property
Search multiple states at once
Unclaimed property is reported to the state in which the company or organization resides. Therefore, it’s common to have unclaimed property in multiple states, especially if you have moved to another state.
Most states participate in MissingMoney.com—a free website, sponsored by NAUPA, from which you can search participating state’s databases for unclaimed property. MissingMoney.com will display any states in which there is a match, and provide information and links to the official government websites for beginning the claims process.
As the foremost authority in unclaimed property, NAUPA helps provide the necessary leadership, consumer protection, and support—facilitating collaboration among government administrators—to promote the success of this beneficial program returning billions in unclaimed property to its owners each year.
Oversight and policies that support the public good
NAUPA develops and adopts policy and engages in the legislative process as needed to represent unclaimed property programs in every state, protect the unclaimed property rights of citizens, and to support the overall public good.
In many states, without impacting the obligation of the state to return unclaimed funds, collections of unclaimed property are utilized to fund public schools and college scholarships.
