DCP: Unclaimed Property

Unclaimed Property

In Connecticut, there is no registration or license required for businesses that act as solicitors of unclaimed property claims. The Office of State Treasurer collects and safeguards money and other valuables which have been unclaimed by Connecticut residents for a specific period of time, generally three to five years. Unclaimed assets may include savings or checking accounts; un-cashed checks; deposits; stocks, bonds or mutual fund shares; travelers' checks or money orders; life insurance policies; and safe deposit box contents, among others. The rightful owners or their heirs always have the right to the funds; there is no time limit to claim the money or property.
