What Type of Documentation Will You Be Required to Submit to Prove Ownership?

The unclaimed property claim form includes instructions for completion and provides examples of documentation you are required to provide to prove you are the rightful owner of the property you are claiming.

When we receive your completed claim form and documentation, we review it carefully. If there is not sufficient proof of ownership, we will contact you or the reporting company by mail for additional information. Please allow us 3 to 4 months to review and process your claim. Claims that involve minerals, stocks, estates or other complex issues may take longer. You may contact our office to check on the status of your claim.

Please select the appropriate claim type below to determine which claim form and related documentation you will need to provide.
