What is unclaimed property? Unclaimed property consists
of many types of intangible personal property held by the
State that has been unclaimed by its rightful owner.
Common types of unclaimed property include:
savings and checking accounts
shared, bond, and dividend checks
deposit box contents
as well as State and local governments, who have held properties
for a specified time and were not able to locate the rightful
owner, notify the State of unclaimed property.
Once unclaimed property is turned over to the State the State
serves as a permanent custodian of the property until the
rightful owner is found. All money is held in the State
general fund for the benefit of all citizens of Kansas.
State Treasurer, Tim Shallenbruger, is committed to actively
seeking the rightful owners of unclaimed property by public
notice and special events, such as television telethons.
No fees are assessed to reclaim unclaimed property.
If the State is holding your property, you do not have to
pay a fee or service charge to reclaim it. If you are
contacted by any individual or firm offering to return unclaimed
property to you for a fee, be aware that you can claim the
property yourself directly from the State Treasurer at no
charge to anyone.
You may research unclaimed property for yourself or a family
