Delaware Searches for Unclaimed Property Owners

The Delaware Department of Finance’s Office of Unclaimed Property is preparing to send out letters on Monday, May 8, 2017, in an effort to reach unclaimed property owners.

Unclaimed property can include forgotten savings and checking accounts, un-cashed checks, insurance policy proceeds, stocks, and utility deposits and refunds. After years of inactivity, these accounts are now considered abandoned, and have been turned over to the state for safe keeping.
While it may be hard to believe that anyone could overlook an investment or savings account, in recent years, the Office of Unclaimed Property has processed over 50,000 claims in recent years – successfully reuniting citizens with more than $402 million in previously unclaimed funds.

You don’t have to wait for the Unclaimed Property Office to contact you – you can search the Unclaimed Property website any time. And filing a claim is easy – just visit https://delaware.findyourunclaimedproperty.com, and search for unclaimed property held in your name. Your documentation can be submitted online through the state’s secure servers – making the entire process safe and fast.

For more information, visit the website – or you may also contact the Office of Unclaimed Property at (855) 505-7520, or email escheat.claimquestions@state.de.us.
