OCFO Community Outreach Unclaimed Property
The Office of Finance and Treasury's Unclaimed Property Unit collects and maintains personal assets that are considered lost or abandoned when an owner cannot be located after a specified period of time.
Through mailings and newspaper notices, they attempt to reunite this property with its rightful owners. While the unit successfully returns an average of $6 million a year, it is conducting an outreach program, including visits to nursing homes, non-profits, and churches, to improve public awareness of its efforts.
Any organization interested in setting up an information session with the Unclaimed Property Unit should call (202) 442-8181.
