About Unclaimed Property
The Kentucky State Treasurer administers Kentucky’s Unclaimed Property Fund. Unclaimed property generally consists of payroll checks, unclaimed safety deposit boxes, old life insurance policies, stocks, or vendor checks that have remained unclaimed by their owners after several years. After a period of time, usually, 3 years, banks and other financial institutions turn over the unclaimed property to the Kentucky State Treasury. People can search for unclaimed property for deceased loved ones through the existing database to discover if they have any unclaimed assets or funds. The Unclaimed Property fund contains assets with a total value of nearly half a billion dollars. Those are assets are owned by Kentucky residents and Kentucky local government agencies.
Throughout the year, companies will mail letters of due diligence to potential owners of intangible property as required by Kentucky law. If you have received such correspondence, please contact the company directly to claim your funds. If funds are not claimed by the property owner within 60 days, the company will report them to the Kentucky State Treasury Unclaimed Property Division as an unclaimed property. You may check on www.missingmoney.com at any time to see if the Kentucky State Treasury Unclaimed Property Division is holding property associated with your name.
