Massachusetts Unclaimed Property

Massachusetts Unclaimed Property is a financial asset that has been declared abandoned on account of no activity by its owner for a longer period of time. The Massachusetts Abandoned Property Division under the Department of State Treasurer has the responsibility to reunite unclaimed property with rightful owners and for this, there exists some unclaimed property programs in the state of Massachusetts.

The outreach program started by the MASS Abandoned Property Division is one such program, in which the staff of the Division visit various locations and events, such as fairs, to satisfy the queries of the citizens of the Commonwealth regarding unclaimed property in MA.

The common forms of unclaimed property in the State of Massachusetts include unpaid wages or commissions, checking accounts, saving accounts, stocks, customer deposits, uncashed dividends, certificates of deposit, underlying shares, credit balances , money orders, safe deposit boxes and paid-up life insurance policies, to name a few.
