Is the PA Treasury Department Holding Your Money?
Check if You Have Any Unclaimed Property

By Rep. Marguerite Quinn
 
As we continue to work our way out of the recession, and spend within our budgets, a little extra cash can ease the burden. Especially when it is already yours!
 
The Pennsylvania Department of Treasury is currently holding quite a bit of extra cash and unclaimed property: $2 billion! This unclaimed property belongs to Commonwealth residents who have accidently left it behind — that may include you.

Unclaimed property is any financial asset that has been left with a “holder,” such as a bank, insurance company or other business or organization, without activity or contact for a period of about five years. By law, at the end of the five-year period, holders must transfer abandoned property to the Treasury Department. The Treasury Department keeps the unclaimed property until it is claimed by the rightful owner. There is no time limit to claim your property. After you prove ownership, your property will be returned to you without charge.

To determine if you have unclaimed property, visit the Treasury’s free and easy-to-use database at
www.PATreasury.gov. Please call 215-489-2126 or visit my district office at 1032 N. Easton Road, Plumstead, if you would like assistance in filling out the online application.
 
As is typically the case when there are valuable resources available, there are scams related to the unclaimed property database. Please be aware that if you are contacted by a company or person who is offering to work for you to get your unclaimed property, THIS IS A SCAM. Do not pay anyone to claim your property as it is free to enter your information into the online database to determine if you have any unclaimed property. The Pennsylvania Department of Treasury will always help you recover your property free of charge, so a paid liaison is unnecessary.
