Hoosiers may find unclaimed money

Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita invites Hoosiers to visit to see if they have any money waiting.

“Returning unclaimed property to rightful owners is an important part of our mission,” Rokita said.

While all states administer unclaimed property programs, Indiana is the only one where the attorney general oversees this function.

Last year, Rokita’s Unclaimed Property Division returned $48 million to Hoosiers.

Things Hoosiers might find include closed bank accounts, court deposits, insurance checks, utility refunds, old paychecks and closed estates.

Once unclaimed property is in its custody, the Unclaimed Property Division conducts an aggressive outreach effort to locate the rightful owners or heirs. Individuals and/or businesses have 25 years in which to claim money once it is reported to the Unclaimed Property Division.
