Louisiana Unclaimed Money
What is Louisiana unclaimed money?
Through the Louisiana Department of the Treasury, unclaimed property totaling millions of dollars was successfully returned to people that were previously unaware of what was owed to them. The forgotten or lost property held in the Louisiana unclaimed money program originates from a variety of different sources, which include safe deposit boxes, money from past insurance claims, the outstanding balances of forgotten bank accounts, stocks with uncollected dividends, matured bonds, and even refunds from former utility providers.
According to Louisiana Revised Statutes 9:151 through 181, businesses must remit to the state any abandoned personal property that has not been claimed. The Louisiana unclaimed money program is tasked with holding these assets until they can be properly claimed.
Some assets were only recently declared “lost,” while in other cases, assets have remained unclaimed for decades. As a result, the records pertaining to these unclaimed assets often exist across multiple databases. Other states, or even the federal government, may also hold similar unclaimed assets. This can make searching for unclaimed money difficult, and so many of these assets remain unclaimed. Navigating any bureaucratic process can be difficult, but the overall process can be made easier by using professionals specially trained for such tasks.
