Vermont Unclaimed Money

Businesses transfer these assets to the Treasurer after an account is inactive for a number of years or when checks go uncashed. For two consecutive weeks before October 1st, the state treasurer publishes the names of owners in local newspapers. Each year Vermont installs a booth at the Champlain Valley Fair and even sends out hundreds of "owner letters" and enlists the town clerks all over Vermont to help locate owners. These efforts have paid off because Vermont has returned over 2 million in claims to their rightful owners.
