The State of California is holding over $4.8 billion in lost or forgotten unclaimed property. Last year, over 239,000 accounts, valued at more than $200 million, were claimed by people like you.

Search the official California Unclaimed Property Bulletin Board system by entering your Individual Last Name or Business Name.

If a match or multiple matches exist, the system will display them and you can print a claim form for each one. A maximum of 500 matches will be displayed. Narrow your search by adding your first name, middle initial or city of residence.

The official database does not always contain all abandoned property accounts. Unclaimed property reports are filed throughout the year, and accounts are posted to the database weekly. Return to this site often to search for unclaimed property.
