Hoosiers Have Millions of Dollars in Unclaimed Property

According to the AG's office, many people do not even know they have unclaimed property.

Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller announced today that Hoosiers currently have almost $100 million in unclaimed property reported to the state treasurer’s office. Monroe County residents alone are owed over $4 million.

“We’re promoting the website, IndianaUnclaimed.Com, asking people to check online not only for themselves and their family, also neighbors and friends.”

Property often includes old paychecks, money left in bank accounts, insurance settlements, or utility deposits.

“Some may not have known they had the property to begin with,” he said. “When we say property, you have to think of it as sort of the ‘lost and found’. As a total, there’s over $350 million on account in the treasurer’s office, just waiting for people to find it”

Last year, the AG’s office returned over $40 million to Hoosiers. You can check the database yourself by following this link.
