Several times a year, the Attorney General’s office publishes the names of Indiana residents who have unclaimed financial assets through newspaper advertising. The advertising is based on geographical regions of the state.
Indiana law requires almost every business organization and governmental body to report and remit unclaimed property to the Attorney General’s Unclaimed Property Division.
People can check to see if they have any unclaimed financial assets by going to www.Indianaunclaimed.gov. The search is based on the individual’s name and there is a procedure to receive the funds.
If the financial assets remain unclaimed for five years, the funds go into the state’s general fund.
