Unclaimed Property Search
California's Unclaimed Property Law requires corporations, businesses, associations,
financial institutions, and insurance companies (referred to as "Holders")
to annually report and deliver property to the California State Controller's Office
after there has been no activity on the account or contact with the owner for a
period of time specified in the law - generally (3) three years or more.
Fields marked with an * are required.
This search page will allow you to locate Unclaimed Property that already has been
sent to the State for safekeeping, as well as property that is about to be sent
to the State by a business as required by law.
If you feel you may have other accounts that did not appear in your search, please
return to this site at a later date as names are continually added to the Unclaimed
Property database. You can also try your search again using a different criteria.
