About Unclaimed Property


Unclaimed property refers to property being held by an organization that has not had contact with the owner for an extended period of time. Property is usually considered unclaimed after three years, when it is turned over to the state of Washington. Banks, retailers, credit unions, utilities, corporations, insurance companies, and governmental entities are some of the many sources of unclaimed property.




The Department of Revenue is the custodian for unclaimed property, and it administers an unclaimed property program to seek the rightful owners.


Typical 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 travelers checks
  • Unclaimed property does not include real estate, vehicles, and most other physical property.


Unclaimed Property Law

Chapter 63.29

State law protects unclaimed property until it can be returned. There is no time limit for filing a claim and rightful owners or their heirs can claim property reported since 1955. The state may auction the content of safe deposit boxes, however, if not claimed within five years.
