The GA treasurer is holding millions of dollars in unclaimed property. Here’s how to search and claim your money or items.
Every state has an office that holds on to unclaimed money and property, including Georgia’s Department of Revenue, and some of it could belong to you. What is unclaimed property? Typically that includes money left in bank accounts, stocks, bonds, dividends, utility deposits, insurance proceeds, tangible property and more.
The state website has an Unclaimed Property Search form that allows residents to input their name and city to begin the search.
