Our Mission

As a division of the Treasury, the Division of Unclaimed Property’s mission is to protect the property interests of citizens through efforts to promote compliance with the Unclaimed Property Act and Escheats Generally Statute and return property to the rightful owner.

Unclaimed Property Laws

How does this program benefit me?

The Unclaimed Property Program protects the rights of the absentee owner, relieves businesses of the liability and record keeping for the account, and ensures that the funds benefit the public.  Rather than contacting every company that may owe you money, our program is the central "lost and found" of unclaimed money owed to Virginians.  We operate under a Virginia law called the Uniform Disposition of Unclaimed Property Act.
