Unclaimed property searches are often quite straightforward, albeit the specifics vary by state. You look for a property by name and, more often than not, by another identifier, such as your zip code or address. After that, you’ll get a list of properties held by people who share your name. In most states, you can then obtain more information about that property to determine if it belongs to you, however, some states just allow public access to the owner’s name. If you believe the property is yours, you can generally file a claim online.
You will be told what type of evidence you need to give to establish your identity and/or ownership during that process. This usually necessitates verification of your identity as well as evidence that you currently or previously resided at the address associated with the property.
