Washington Unclaimed Property

Washington Unclaimed Property refers to a financial asset that has been held by some entity other than the original owner for a longer period of time. As per the law of the state of Washington, the holders of such property, funds, money or cash cannot continue to hold these for more than three years. After this period, the business entity must transfer the accounts of such Unclaimed Properties to the WA State, if it fails to contact owners. The Washington State Department of Revenue is the agency for reporting about the existence of unclaimed funds in its records.
