How to Claim Money

To search for money and file a claim online, just complete the following steps:

  1. Begin your search by entering the LAST name you wish to search for in the top blank  of the "What will you discover" box above.  (If you are searching for a business, enter the business name here).   
  2. In the middle blank, enter the FIRST name you wish to search (This step is not required, but it will help you narrow your search). 
  3.  In the last blank, enter the CITY where this person lives or lived in the past. (This step is not required, but it will also narrow your search).
  4. After you have entered your information, click the SEARCH NOW button below the blanks.
  5. Once the search results appear, check the box(es) on the far left for any of the items that you wish to claim (see below).  Note that you may select more than one property which will allow you to collect multiple properties on a single claim.
  6. After you have selected the properties you wish to claim, press the CLAIM PROPERTIES button.  At this point, you will be directed to enter your contact information (name, address, etc).  In the relationship drop down box, select the option that best describes you (I am the owner of the property, I am the administrator for the deceased property owner, or I am claiming on behalf of a business).
  7. IMPORTANT:  If you wish to track your claim online once it is filed, you must also register a user name and password on this page.  Establishing a user name and password is not required.  However, it is a feature intended to provide convenience to those wishing to monitor the status of a submitted claim.  If you do not register at the time you file your claim, you will not be able to return later and establish a user name and password. 
  8. After you have entered all of your information, you may print the required claim form by clicking PRINT FORM.  If you cannot print the form and would like us to send you a form in the mail, click on REQUEST BY MAIL.
