What is Unclaimed Property?

You may be wondering what unclaimed property is. Unclaimed property is money that is left behind and turned over to the state to hold for the rightful owners. It includes but is not limited to utility deposits, unpaid wages, insurance proceeds, securities, savings and checking accounts. The Unclaimed Property Division receives new property every year.

In 2017, $8 million was received and $6.5 million was successfully returned to the citizens of Wyoming. However, the Division is still holding approximately $70 million in unclaimed property from previous years. Find out if you have Unclaimed Property, search our database now!
