Unclaimed Funds

Unclaimed Funds

General Information

Unclaimed funds are assets that have existed in accounts or deposits that were inactive for five or more years. After this dormant period, holders of these accounts are required by Ohio law to turn them over to the Ohio Department of Commerce if the holder is unable to locate the owner of the funds. These funds are held by the state until claimed by the rightful owner.

Unclaimed funds come from a variety of sources, such as:

  • Uncashed checks
  • Inactive checking and savings accounts
  • Forgotten rent and utility payments
  • Insurance benefits
  • Stock shares and dividend checks
  • Safe Deposit Box contents
