Millions in Unclaimed Property in Indiana
The state is trying to find the rightful owners of millions in unclaimed money.
The Indiana Attorney General's Office is urging people to check the state's unclaimed property database, which is now over $199 million. Over 303,000 new properties, worth more than $35 million, was added to the list just last year.
Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller says residents in every county have forgotten about, or never knew the properties existed. "It is my duty to inform Hoosiers how to find and claim it. This money belongs to someone, and I'm encouraging people to search for themselves, and their family, friends and neighbors."
Hoosiers can search the state's website IndianaUnclaimed.com. The unclaimed property typically includes insurance proceeds and benefits, wages, investment earnings and money from checking and savings accounts.
