Unclaimed money in Indiana totals more than $550 million. It paid out more than $50 million in claims in 2018, but it also received $28 million in unclaimed property. Keep in mind that these figures are constantly changing as property is reported as unclaimed and then claimed by the rightful owners. Even though Indiana possesses over half a billion dollars in unclaimed property, it only accounts for a small part of the total. According to the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators (NAUPA), an unclaimed/abandoned property and money organization based in the United States, there is around $42 billion in unclaimed property.
When we talk about big numbers, we’re talking about huge numbers. How big is it? If the numbers from the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators (NAUPA) are true, the total value of unclaimed property in the United States is estimated to be over $42 billion. California is home to a large portion of that money. The state of California now has more than $8 billion in unclaimed property that belongs to around 32.5 million people and businesses.
