About Unclaimed Funds
Unclaimed (or abandoned) money and other assets not used for a length of time or whose rightful owner cannot be located are turned over to us after a specific period of time has passed.
A bank account, rent or utility deposit, uncashed check, undelivered stock certificate or uncashed insurance policy are some of the unclaimed funds that come to the Ohio Department of Commerce Division of Unclaimed Funds. If there is no activity in the account for a period of time and the company cannot reach the account owner, the funds are reported to the Division for safekeeping.
The Division works aggressively to track down the rightful owner and reunite that Ohioan with their hard-earned, but forgotten money.
