Unclaimed Money San Antonio: $3 billion. This is how much Texas State Treasurer has returned to Texans in unclaimed funds. It takes seconds to determine if you are owed money or property unclaimed, and it takes just a few more minutes to claim what is yours.
The state may hold unclaimed money for anyone with a Texas last known address. This could be an old utility check you forgot to send or an old payroll check that never made it to your new address.
If a company attempts to send the money but fails, the money is sent to the Texas Treasurer’s Unclaimed Property Program. The state then tries to locate the rightful owner. The family members of the deceased can claim the rightful owner. Residents can make claims at any time.
