- You'll see a brief explanation of what unclaimed property is and also a link that opens a list of last year's unclaimed property or money and the businesses or individuals that are owed it.
- Click on the unclaimed property list. The list is broken up into blocks the first of which being last names or businesses beginning with A-E. Then F-J, K-O, P-T, and U-Z.
- To make your search easier Adobe Reader has an option to type in a name or word that you are looking for and it will search the document for you. This option is called "find" in the Adobe Reader application. Or you can scroll down the document as the listings are in alphabetical order.
