Massachusetts Unclaimed Money

It is estimated that one person in every ten in Massachusetts has abandoned property. According to the Massachusetts Abandoned Property Laws, most financial assets that have been not utilized or inactive for more than three years are declared abandoned and turned over to the commonwealth. In accordance with the Massachusetts Abandoned Property Act, Chapter 200A of M.G.L., property becomes 'abandoned' when the owner cannot be contacted for a three-year period by the holder of the asset, or for fifteen years in the case of traveler's checks.

According to the Unclaimed Property Act of Massachusetts, the unclaimed property is held until it could be handed over to the rightful owners. Massachusetts unclaimed money is held in the state treasury office. There is an alphabetical list of people whose last known address was in Massachusetts and who are due to receive money for unclaimed property for the number of years prescribed by statute.

The Unclaimed divisions have held the accounts for more than 2 years. Even if your name is not on the list, you may wish to call the Unclaimed Property Division to check if any funds are being held in your name. It is important to note that accounts held less than 2 years are not available for public inspection. Please try using various combinations of your name in order to search for unclaimed money. Also bear in mind that there may be assets in your maiden name.

Massachusetts unclaimed property or money could be in the form of funds from a dormant checking and savings accounts, un-cashed money orders, cashiers checks, mineral royalty payments, safe deposit box contents, unused gift certificates, unclaimed insurance benefits, lost cash dividends, stock, found utility deposits, unclaimed security deposits, and court deposits. Abandoned or unclaimed property however, does not pertain to land, houses or real estate of any kind. Massachusetts's unclaimed property, which was held by another state or a company, is kept in protective custody if they could not be paid to the rightful owner. The owners last recorded state address is always taken into consideration with reference to Massachusetts's unclaimed money.

Each year billions of dollars in dormant or lost accounts go without ever being found when governments, companies and banks lose track of the true owner of the money. This could be due to a host of reasons like marriage break up, misspelled names, businesses going bankrupt, banks getting dissolved, unexpected migration or relocation of jobs, address changes without prior notification, death, post office errors etc. If you know anyone who has ever moved or died, the state of Massachusetts is probably holding unclaimed funds in their name.

Do not assume that the business has your last known address. If the business holding your property doesn't have a valid address for you, the property is supposed to be sent to the state where the business was incorporated. Many large corporations are from: Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, California or other areas.

Make sure you check with every state in which you have ever lived (unclaimed property is generally turned over to the state of your last address as reflected in the records of the business holding your found money, stock, etc.). While abandoned assets are deposited in the Massachusetts General Fund on a yearly basis, owners can always claim their financial assets at any time. All funds earn interest until claimed. It takes nearly 6 weeks to process a claim.

There are three levels of approval after the Unclaimed Division receives a claim form:
* Level one checks if the relevant documents submitted are correct and in proper order.
* Level two approvals checks the eligibility and authenticity of his claim.
* Level Three approval approves the verification of the documents and the authenticity off the claim. If both the levels are correct, then the claim is approved for the payment.
