Notice to Our Website Visitors - Due to server maintenance at our website host (the state’s Office of Technology Services), the Controller’s Unclaimed Property Inquiry application may be unavailable for up to 30 minutes, Friday, October 9, 2015, and Friday, October 16, 2015, between the hours of 6 p.m. and 1 a.m. Pacific Time.

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.
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

Property database. You can also try your search again using a different criteria.
