What is Unclaimed Property?
According to the NC Department of Treasury, unclaimed property consists of bank accounts, wages, utility deposits, insurance policy proceeds, stocks, bonds, and contents of safe deposit boxes that typically have been abandoned for one to five years. Funds become unclaimed because the company loses track of the consumer, due to an incorrect address or other missing information. By law, these funds are escheated, or turned over, to the Department of State Treasurer for safekeeping. As new funds are added, the NC Cash database is updated, which means that your name could be listed right now.
And it’s that easy. The state of North Carolina will then return the assets you are owed so essentially it’s free money. Unfortunately, I checked and don’t get anything, but hey it was worth trying!
