There is a lot to love about life in Hawaii. Some of the most beautiful beaches in the world are just a short drive away, and you live in a place millions of people flock to, all anxious to get a glimpse of life in the land of aloha.
Whether you are a fan of the great outdoors and long to climb an active volcano someday or just want to go about your daily life, the only thing better than living in Hawaii is living in Hawaii with a little bit of extra cash in your pocket. As with other states, the state of Hawaii maintains an exhaustive database of unclaimed property, and here are the steps you can take to take back your missing loot.
1.Start your search at the database of the customer facing portal the state maintains to service its residents and customers. The website address housing that database is portal.ehawaii.gov.
2.Click the Go to Website button about halfway down the page to enter the unclaimed property section.
3.Enter your first and last name to conduct a business search. Enter the name of your business to look for property that may belong to a company you own or used to own.
4.Click the box to verify that you are a human being and not a bot. This simple check is designed to protect the integrity of the database and prevent the theft of property from current and former Hawaii residents.
5.Review the list of results carefully to see if any of the property listed may belong to you. Take note of the property and use it to complete a claim form.
6.Complete the claim form to begin the reclamation process. Take note of any additional documentation you may need to prove that you are the rightful owner of the property in question.
7.Check back with the website from time to time to see where your claim is in the process. It may take some time for your claim to be processed, and the amount of time it takes will vary depending on the number of claims and the current staffing level at the state.
8.Sit back at the beach, relax and enjoy a day in the sun, all courtesy of the state of Hawaii and its unclaimed property division.
There you have it – the state of Hawaii has cash waiting for you, and all you need to do is stake your claim. Whether your initial search comes up dry or not, it pays to check back from time to time – you never know what you might find.
