New Hampshire unclaimed money
NH RSA 471C is the law regarding abandoned property for New Hampshire Unclaimed property. When a financial institution like a bank or insurance company holds your money in an account, and there has been no owner generated activity, or you have not communicated regarding the account for at least five years, the institution presumes it is abandoned. At this point the institution turns it over to the State Treasurer who acts as custodian of that money. The owners' names are advertised in a statewide newspaper and postcards are sent to the "owners' last known addresses". If you can establish ownership you may reclaim your money from the Unclaimed Property Division Call the state treasury department and inform them about it. Signing an agreement to have someone assist you in recovering unclaimed property may entail the payment of substantial fees. Such an agreement is unenforceable in New Hampshire if it covers property, which has been in the State's custody for 24 months or less.
