If you have lived or worked in Connecticut, you may have some connecticut unclaimed funds that belong to you. These are assets that have been turned over to the state by businesses or organizations that lost contact with you. To discover this fact, simply search online or contact an agency directly.
Why does this happen?
Assets including savings or checking accounts, uncashed checks, certificates of deposit, stocks, bonds or mutual funds investments as well as travelers’ checks or money orders that remain uncashed can become unclaimed property if contact between business and customer is lost for three to five years.
After that, they’re turned over to the state.
The Unclaimed money Division is responsible for protecting any assets turned over to the Office of the Treasurer until their rightful owners can be located.
If you are the rightful owner, filing a claim could help to get it back.
Search the CTBigList website or call 1-800-833-7318 Monday through Friday between 8:30 am and 5 pm to determine whether you have unclaimed property.
