Unclaimed Property

Each year, the Pennsylvania Treasury receives millions of dollars of unclaimed property. It is estimated that roughly one in 10 Pennsylvanians has unclaimed property.

Unclaimed property may include:

  • Closed bank accounts;
  • Uncashed checks, including paychecks;
  • Lost stocks and bonds;
  • Contents of safe deposit boxes;
  • Proceeds from the demutualization of insurance companies;
  • Expired gift cards/gift certificates.

To find out if you have unclaimed property, search your name in the Unclaimed Property database at www.patreasury.gov/Unclaimed/Search.html.

“Treasury receives hundreds of millions of dollars in unclaimed property every year, often because of something as simple as a misspelled name or an out-of-date address. But let’s be clear: this is YOUR money we’re talking about, and I want to return it to you.”

- Stacy Garrity, State Treasurer
