State Treasurer Announces Latest Release Of Unclaimed Property Listings

BOSTON, MA — Massachusetts State Treasurer Deb Goldberg announced the latest grouping of names that have been added to the state’s list of unclaimed property owners.

Over 48,000 new properties worth millions of dollars are owed to individuals and businesses throughout the commonwealth.

“We currently hold over $3.4 billion in unclaimed property at the treasurer’s office, and it could be yours,” said Goldberg. “One in 10 Massachusetts residents are owed money. Call our office today to begin the claims process.”

Unclaimed property includes forgotten savings and checking accounts, un-cashed checks, insurance policy proceeds, stocks, dividends, and the contents of unattended safe deposit boxes. Most accounts are considered abandoned and are turned over to the state after three years of inactivity. Last year, the treasurer’s office processed over 106,000 claims and returned over $130 million in property to its rightful owners.

This newly released list includes only individuals and businesses with unclaimed property over $100. Treasurer Goldberg urged all citizens to check the comprehensive list for all amounts at http://findmassmoney.com or call the live call center at 888-344-MASS (6277).

The treasurer’s office releases an updated list of unclaimed property assets every six months as the new accounts are turned over to the commonwealth. There is no time limit for a person to claim this property and, in many cases, claimants will receive interest.
