Each year, unclaimed or abandoned assets are turned over to Alabama Unclaimed Property by financial institutions and businesses that lose contact with the owners.
These assets may be in the form of cash, stocks, bonds, insurance benefits or even valuables from safe deposit boxes.
Alabama Treasury serves as custodian of these assets and makes every effort to return them to the rightful owner or their heirs.
If you are a current or past resident of Alabama then we invite you to search for any unclaimed monies that might be owed to you or a loved one.
