WASHINGTON STATE - The Department of Revenue launched a new website aimed at making it easier for Washingtonians to find unclaimed funds.
The new site makes it easier for the public to search for and file claims.
Unclaimed property includes:
- Bank accounts
- Insurance proceeds
- Stocks, bonds, and mutual funds
- Safe deposit box contents
- Utility and phone company deposits
- Uncashed checks, such as payroll, insurance payments or traveler’s checks
- Customer/patient credits
It does not include real estate, vehicles and most other physical property.
Currently, one in two Washingtonians have unclaimed property being held by the state, according to the Department of Revenue.
As of May 6, the department said it has returned more than $1.13 billion to Washingtonians.
