INDIANA – Are you feeling lucky this St. Patrick’s Day? Why not try the luck of the Irish and search for unclaimed property? Attorney General Todd Rokita invites Hoosiers to visit IndianaUnclaimed.gov to see if they have any money waiting for them this spring.
“One of our top missions is to return property to its rightful owners and we will do anything in our power to do that,” Attorney General Rokita said. “This green holiday is a perfect time for Hoosiers to find a four-leaf clover and start searching.”
Last year, Attorney General Rokita’s Unclaimed Property Division returned $62 million to Hoosiers, and you could be the next lucky leprechaun!
Some property owners in the Unclaimed Property Division’s database include such holiday-appropriate first or last names of Irish, Gold, Blarney, Shamrock and Rainbow.
Here are the types of property that might go unclaimed this St. Patrick’s Day that are even better than a pot of gold:
- Unclaimed wages or commissions
- Money orders
- Safety deposit box contents
- Savings and checking accounts
- Overpayments such as:
- Credit card balances
- Cell phone bills
- DMV payments
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 to claim money once it is reported to the Unclaimed Property Division.
Be sure to check IndianaUnclaimed.gov or text CLAIM to 46220 to search your name, family, or business.
