Tutorial on Finding Your Hawaii Unclaimed Property
- This link will take you to the Hawaii Department of Budget and Finance. There you will find some information field boxes to be filled to help you find your money. If you are an individual enter your last name and first name then click search. If you are a business owner looking for money owed to your business then enter the name of your business.
- Hitting "Begin search" will bring up a list of names matching yours and differing addresses. Find an address that you lived at at one time and if you believe it to be you click on the property ID number to the left of it.
- That will then bring up a description of the Hawaii unclaimed property. If you still believe it to be yours, fill out the information fields, the first of which is a drop down box that requires you to make known your relationship to the owner of the unclaimed property if you are claiming on someone else's behalf. The other form fields are full name, address, birthdate, SS# or TIN, and/or email address. When finished hit "Next" at the bottom.
- The information you entered will then be displayed in a form that you can print off. Review the information to make sure it is correct and hit "claim form" to download the document and print off the form. The button below that, "owner claim instructions," will take you to a page that will inform you of some important points to note and is suggested to read. Click here to read owner information.

- Once you have it printed out you must sign it and if the claim is for more than $50 it must be notarized by a notary public. Also, included with this form when sent, should be a copy of your government issued photo ID and any other documents that help you to prove ownership.
