Unclaimed Property

About Unclaimed Property:
Missouri State Treasurer, Scott Fitzpatrick, administers Unclaimed Property for the state. Unclaimed Property comes from financial institutions, insurance companies, public agencies and other business entities after there has been no documented transaction or contact with the owner for a statutorily-defined period of time, generally 5 years. The State Treasurer currently holds more than $1 billion in unclaimed assets in more than 5 million owner accounts. One in 10 Missourians has Unclaimed Property.

The contents of the safe deposit boxes contain family heirlooms, jewelry and other keepsakes. Some of the most precious items recovered from safe deposit boxes are military medals and insignia. The Treasurer and his team work to return these items to the heroes who earned them or their families. Information about the names and last known addresses of the safe deposit box owners from which the medals and insignia were found is available at:  Treasurer.mo.gov/Military

Unclaimed Property can be donated to 20 different charitable organizations operating in Missouri. The process of donating Unclaimed Property can be completed entirely online in most cases. Go to https://treasurer.mo.gov/UnclaimedProperty/Donate.aspx to find out more.
