Indiana Unclaimed Money Outreach
Once unique fact about Indiana’s unclaimed property division is that it is under the state attorney general’s office, and not the treasurer. Most states have their division under the treasurer’s office but the Hoosier state considers this a consumer protection program which is under the attorney general of Indiana.
Last year representatives from the unclaimed property division visited all 92 counties in their outreach efforts. They were able to return more than $36 million to residents in Indiana. These outreach efforts are through local meetings and county fairs as well as other general outreach events.
Like some states, Indiana does have a time limit on how long it will hold unclaimed property. At this time any accounts that go unclaimed for more than 25 years become property of the state. These funds go into a general fund for now, but there is support to eventually give this money back to the taxpayers in some fashion.
