Maine Unclaimed Money
What is Maine unclaimed money?
Millions of dollars’ worth of unclaimed property are held by different state and federal government agencies until the rightful owner can come forward to claim it. The lost or abandoned assets of the Maine unclaimed money program can originate from income tax refunds, matured bonds, publicly traded stock with uncollected dividends, old bank accounts that have been forgotten, inherited property, safe deposit boxes, or many other possible sources. If you’ve ever moved or changed jobs, chances are you may have some lost or forgotten assets that can be claimed.
The Maine unclaimed money program holds over $200 million in unclaimed funds belonging to current and former residents. Of the unclaimed assets currently held by the state of Maine, some have been unclaimed for several decades, while other assets have only recently been declared “lost.”
The official procedures for acquiring unclaimed money can be complicated when the information pertaining to them exists across multiple government agencies. Maine is not the only state with this problem, and analogous problems exist with unclaimed assets held by the federal government.
