FDIC unclaimed property listing released

Jan 26, 2015   //   by Chad   //   Documents, Unclaimed property search  //  No Comments

The technical team at Discovered Money has released a large database of unclaimed property records for the public to view for free.  This list is current as of January 26, 2015 and will be updated periodically.

The FDIC (Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation) guarantees many bank accounts a minimum amount if the financial institution holding the funds is closed or fails for any reason.  After a bank closure, the FDIC receives a list of depositors from the failed institution and attempts to contact all owners of the funds for transfer to a new institution.  Not all of the owners are able to be contacted.  This database contains a list of those account holders who are due an unspecified amount of money from the FDIC.

The database is available in Google Sheets at this link.

San Diego County issues list for September unclaimed funds deadline

Jul 29, 2012   //   by Chad   //   Documents, Latest News, Unclaimed property search  //  No Comments

According to the San Diego Business Journal:

San Diego County Treasurer-Tax Collector Dan McAllister says he has nearly 800 unclaimed cash accounts amounting to almost $200,000 that he’s trying to return to the rightful owners.

The funds in the accounts came from individuals who have done business with any county department in the past three years and are overpayments. The majority of the money, some $117,000, is property tax refunds, but another $94,000 is from refunds by various county departments consumers have dealt with. The largest refund is for about $8,700 while the lowest is $10.

“We hope that the owners come forward before September 14, 2012 and claim their refunds,” McAllister said.

After that deadline, state law allows unclaimed countywide funds to be turned over to the county’s general fund; property tax refunds require four years before the county can officially take them.

The property tax refund listing is available here in PDF format and here in XLSX format (Excel 2010).

The county-wide refund listing is available here in PDF format.
