Louisiana Unclaimed Money

The first unclaimed property in Louisiana law was enacted in 1972. A revision to the National Uniform Unclaimed Property Act came into picture in 1981 following the "Texas v. New Jersey" court case and some administrative problems. Under Title 9, Sections 151 through 181 of the Louisiana Revised Statutes, property is presumed abandoned when the company (holder) who has possession of property owed to another cannot locate the owner for a specified number of years (holding period). The rightful owner of Louisiana unclaimed property can claim the funds at any time. The Treasurer's Office has taken over the right for the administration of the unclaimed property program from the Department of Revenue as per the Act 135 of the 2000 Legislative Session. The Louisiana unclaimed property is held in the state's custody until it could be handed over to the rightful owners.
