Reporting Instructions

The Reporting Process
The treasurer's office understands that reporting unclaimed property can be a large task. In an effort to make the process easier, we have broken it down into a step-by-step process.
  1. Identify the property to be reported July 1 thru October. This includes savings and checking accounts, unclaimed wages, dividends, securities, policy benefits, gift cards, any type of outstanding check, safe deposit boxes, utilities, etc. For a detailed listing please refer here. If the entity is not holding any reportable property at this time, a report does not have to be filed.
  2. Attempt to locate the owners July 1 thru October. Holders can do this by sending a letter to the owner at their last known address. A sample due diligence letter can be found here.
  3. Enter owner and property information into the reporting software July 1 thru October. (Creating the Report)
