This question is contingent on a variety of aspects, such as the kind of unclaimed funds and the organization in charge of the money. In general, the process of receiving money that is not claimed by New Mexico can take anywhere between a few weeks and months.
For instance, people who are unable to claim money from tax refunds or a check that has not been cashed may have the ability to receive their cash quickly. It is possible to get your money quickly. New Mexico Taxation and Revenue Department has an online database where people can search for money that is not claimed. If their name is in the database, they may fill out a claim form and generally receive their money within a couple of weeks.
Other forms of unclaimed funds, including utility or insurance benefits, can take longer to be credited. It is possible that the New Mexico Department of Public Regulation has an online database of property that is not claimed which includes utility deposits. People can search for their name in the database then; should they spot the right match, they can submit an application for a claim. This agency then starts the process of confirming the claim and will issue the money, which could be a couple of weeks or months.
