Can I file a claim myself?
Yes, anyone can file a claim to retrieve their unclaimed property. We assist when individuals do not want to or do not have the time to traverse the claim process.
How long does the process take to complete?
The State Controller’s Office gives no set time-frame, they will consider the claim within 180-days (6 months) of receipt of all documents required to substantiate the claim. Many cases have been completed in 3-4 months, but there are no guarantees on the timeline. Patience is required.
