Tutorial on Finding Your Maine Unclaimed Property
Once on the Office of the State Treasurer Unclaimed Property search page of Maine you'll see a list of things that are required to make a claim. Note that you need to enter your or the person's SS# who's money you are looking for to view details for the property to be claimed. And you may need a printer depending on the contents of your claim.
Click "Go" to advance to the next page. You'll then be required to enter some information. Not all information is required. If you know the property ID enter that in the first box. The next two are for your first and last names. And the third is the city you live in or lived in that the property may be listed under.
If you find your name and the town you live in or lived in at one time click on "more information." It will then show the information of the claim including an approximate of how much money is to be claimed and the business or organization that reported the money or property. If you're confident that it's your money click "Add to My Claim."
You may do this for multiple accounts if you believe you are the owner of the other accounts. Once you are satisfied you have claimed all of your money click "file my claim now" at the top of the list of names. It then shows all the accounts that you are claiming along with the information of the properties. You have to then specify whether you are claiming as an individual or business in the drop box below the account information. Click "File My Claim" to advance.
If you are claiming as an individual you have to specify your relationship to the owner of the property whether it is yourself or someone else in the drop down box. Click "Continue."
Several information fields are then required to be filled. The required fields are marked with a red asterisk. Not all are required but the more information you enter the better to help speed the claim process. One thing to be noted is if it is anything other than stock property to be claimed you must choose "cash" in the drop down box in the middle of the fields.
You then can review your information you entered as well as the property ID which is suggested that you write down or save for future checks on the status of the claim. Click "Submit My Claim."
An email is then sent to the email address that you provided with further directions on your Maine unclaimed property.
