Connecticut unclaimed money totals are nearing the $1 billion mark currently sitting at $922 million (as of June 2018). The number of unclaimed accounts sits at 1.7 million. Thats an average of over $500 per claim. These claims can be lost bank accounts, unclaimed safe deposit boxes, stocks and bonds and more.
Connecticut Unclaimed Money Totals Growing
Last fiscal year, the state of Connecticut returned over $58 million in unclaimed money and property to over 18,000 individuals. This is another increase in money returned for the state. However the amount received continues to rise as well. During the same period, Connecticut unclaimed money collected totaled $138 million. This was broken down by $89 million voluntarily reported in accordance with the state’s unclaimed money and unclaimed property laws. $44 million was collected through the sale of securities, and an additional $6 million resulted from the Treasurer’s office review of company records.
