The Official State of Texas Unclaimed Property Website
One in four Texans has unclaimed property from forgotten bank accounts, uncashed checks, security deposits and utility refunds. It’s your money, and we want you to get it back.
There is currently about $3 billion in property that has not been claimed and approximately $800 million in shared property that has been partially claimed and paid to some of the owners. It’s never too late to make a claim, and we are committed to ensuring hardworking Texans don’t lose a penny.
COME AND GET IT!
In 2012, the state returned more than $159 million to its owners. Find out what you may have been missing by searching our unclaimed property database.
