Iowa Unclaimed Money
What is Iowa unclaimed money?
Since 1983, State Treasurer Michael L. Fitzgerald’s Great Iowa Treasure Hunt has reunited more than 500,000 people with lost property that they did not even realize existed. In total, the value for all these unclaimed assets is reported to be over $200 million. Due to a variety of circumstances, people forget or lose track of various types of financial assets, such as old bank accounts, government bonds that have now matured, and even forgotten stocks that were once thought to be worthless.
The assets held by the Iowa unclaimed money program vary in age based on when they were officially declared “lost.” It is not uncommon for some assets to be several decades old, but there are still many assets that are comparatively young.
Due to the special efforts of Iowa’s state treasurer, the Iowa unclaimed money program has been remarkably successful, but because new assets are constantly being added to the program, there will always be abandoned unclaimed property.
It is important to remember that even former Iowa residents currently living in another state could potentially have unclaimed money owed to them. It can be difficult to navigate the bureaucratic process when searching for and claiming lost property. Expert services like Unclaimed Money Discovery exist to help make the process easier.
