WEST CHESTER (January 5) – State Senator Andy Dinniman reminded residents to check with the Pennsylvania Treasury’s Bureau of Unclaimed Property to see if there is property waiting for them to claim.

The Treasury currently has more than $2.3 billion in unclaimed property waiting to be claimed by its rightful owners. You can search the registry by visiting www.patreasury.gov.

The registry includes items from forgotten bank accounts and stocks, uncashed checks, and rebates, the contents of safety deposit boxes and other unclaimed property.

“If you’ve every forgotten to cash a last paycheck or reclaim a deposit, that money is not lost forever, it is held for you by the Pennsylvania Treasury,” Dinniman said. “The treasury serves as custodian of unclaimed property and it remains available to be claimed by its rightful owner or heir in perpetuity.”

Last year alone, the treasury collected $400 million in dormant and forgotten property.

“Approximately one in ten Pennsylvanians have unclaimed property and Treasury’s goal is to reconnect as many people as possible with property and funds that are rightfully theirs,” Timothy A. Reese, State Treasurer, said.

In addition, in 2016, the Treasury reunited thousands of Pennsylvanians with a record $175 million in property and money bringing the total value of money and items returned since July 1, 2005 to $1.3 billion.

Dinniman encouraged residents to search the database and see if the Treasury may be holding unclaimed property for them.

“Extra cash is always helpful after the holidays. You just might find that you are due for a late Christmas present,” Dinniman said. “I urge you to search the database. If your name is listed, please feel free contact my district office for assistance in claiming your property.”
