Utah Treasurer's Office Announces On-line Unclaimed Property Search

20 Mar, 2001, 00:00 ET from Division of Unclaimed Property for the State of Utah

    SALT LAKE CITY, March 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Find out if you are among the
 400,000 owners of over $70,000,000 of unclaimed funds currently held by the
 State of Utah!  The Division of Unclaimed Property of the Utah State
 Treasurer's Office announced the roll out of a new interactive website that
 allows citizens to do unclaimed property searches on the Internet.  This new
 unclaimed property search is available at www.e-utah.org.
     "The online search will allow thousands of property owners to find their
 unclaimed property easily and begin the claim process quickly," stated Doug
 Johnson, Deputy State Treasurer.
     The Treasurer's Office partnered with eUtah, the official electronic
 government portal for the State of Utah, to develop the Unclaimed Property
 Search.  The eUtah government technology initiative was created to develop the
 state home page and interactive services for state and local government
 agencies.
 
     How it Works
     The search process is simple:  Go to the website, www.e-utah.org, and
 select the blue "Do An Unclaimed Property Search" button in the center of the
 page.  On the search page, enter your name, and the unclaimed property
 database will tell you if you are an owner of unclaimed property.  You may
 begin the claim process on the property you located by filling out an online
 form.  Once the claim is processed and your ownership has been established,
 you will receive the funds that are rightfully yours.
 
     The Unclaimed Property Division is the custodian of all unclaimed property
 for the State of Utah.  Unclaimed property consists of money and other
 personal assets that are considered lost or abandoned when an owner cannot be
 located after a specified period of time.  It includes checking accounts,
 certificates of deposit, over payments, gift certificates, paid-up life
 insurance policies, unpaid wages, commissions, uncashed checks, death
 benefits, dividends, insurance payments, money orders, refunds, savings
 accounts, stocks and contents of safe deposit boxes.  Unclaimed Property does
 not include real estate.
