Indiana Unclaimed

STATEHOUSE –Rep. Phyllis Pond (R-New Haven) wants constituents to know Indiana has more than $350 million in unclaimed property. Project Reunite was established by the Unclaimed Property Division of Attorney General, Greg Zoeller’s, office to give money or property to the rightful owner. The money belongs to natives or former natives of Indiana. In fact, over $75,000 was already discovered for Hoosiers during the Unclaimed Property stand at the Indiana State Fair.
 

Unclaimed property includes a number of different items, like old bank accounts, forgotten stocks, money, utility deposits, safe deposit boxes, insurance proceeds, or even an unclaimed inheritance.
According to the Attorney General’s office one free, easy way to discover unclaimed property can be found by calling 1.866.462.5246 or by visiting www.IndianaUnclaimed.com  . Once on the website, there are six simple steps involved to become reunited with unclaimed property:
