You’ve probably seen or heard the commercials about all the unclaimed assets that the Massachusetts Unclaimed Property Division is trying to return to the rightful owners.
According to the website www.findmassmoney.com, unclaimed property consists of unclaimed financial assets such as checking and savings accounts, unpaid wages, securities, uncashed dividends, life insurance policies, uncashed checks, safe deposit boxes, etc that are without activity for a certain period of time. It does not include real estate or vehicles. Typically, assets become unclaimed when the owner cannot be contacted for a three-year period by the holder of the asset.
