Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita is reminding Hoosiers to check for assets waiting for them after the recent National Unclaimed Property Day (Feb. 1) .
Last year, the Unclaimed Property Division returned over $61 million to Hoosiers.
Here are the types of property that might go unclaimed:
Unclaimed wages or commissions
Safety deposit box contents
Savings and checking accounts
Overpayments such as:
Credit card balances
Cell phone bills
There are also some tangible items received from dormant safe deposit boxes.
Individuals and/or businesses have 25 years in which to claim money once it is reported to the Unclaimed Property Division. All you must do is supply proof of rightful ownership.
“Protecting Hoosiers’ liberty is my office’s top priority,” Attorney General Rokita said. “Returning unclaimed property to the rightful owners is just one way we carry out this larger mission. Who knows — you might find $5 or $1,000, but it’s worth a look.”
