Unclaimed Property Administration



Claims for unclaimed property held by the State are processed by the Office of State Treasurer. There is no charge for this service!
Each year millions of dollars in cash and securities are turned over to New Jersey’s Unclaimed Property Administration (UPA) by businesses who are unable to re-establish contact with the rightful owners. These funds may be bank accounts, payroll checks, utility deposits, refunds or any of the many other types of assets covered under the UPA Statute (N.J.S.A.46:30B1-109). The statute exists to safeguard these funds from private escheatment thus ensuring that the original owner of the asset never relinquishes ownership. The State only acts as a custodian of these funds until the rightful owner(s) can be located, verified, and the assets are returned. This site allows you to search our database to determine if we’re holding unclaimed assets belonging to you. If you locate unclaimed property belonging to you or you have the legal capacity to claim an asset belonging to someone else, you can submit a claim in just a few simple steps.
Unclaimed assets are reported in the name or Social Security number of the owner(s) along with any owner information (if available).
The Treasurer's office will periodically update this database to include new names reported and to remove those which have completed the claim process and have been returned to its rightful owner(s).
