Unclaimed property

Did you know there’s a chance you may be owed money and not even realize it?

The Pennsylvania Treasurer’s Office holds onto unclaimed property from abandoned bank accounts, forgotten stocks, checks that haven’t been cashed and many other sources. You could even be owed money if you were named as a beneficiary on a life insurance policy. There are many reasons the state could be holding onto your money.

The good news is, it only takes a minute to check to see if there is any unclaimed property waiting for you by visiting www.patreasury.org.

Searching for and recovering unclaimed property held by the state is free; if you’re contacted by someone offering to help you search for unclaimed property for a fee should ignore those solicitations. My staff is also available to help.
