Each year, the Treasury Department receives millions of dollars in unclaimed property. Common types of unclaimed property include savings or checking accounts, stocks, dividends, checks that have not been cashed such as payroll, certificates of deposit, unclaimed insurance benefits, insurance premium refunds, and the like.
Last year, more than $200 million was returned to property owners, including $7 million to counties and municipalities. However, more than $4 billion in unclaimed property is currently being held by Treasury. There are entries for townships, fire departments, and municipal authorities on the list of Unclaimed Property Owners. Search to see if your township is owed funds by clicking here.
