To conduct a search for lost funds, enter your name in the search engine on the main page of IndianaUnclaimed.gov, and click on Search. If you receive no results, revise your search by trying alternate spellings of your name, nicknames, maiden name, and the names of parents and relatives. If your search comes up with a match, complete the online claim form, print it out, and sign it officially in the presence of a notary public. Mail it to the unclaimed property office along with the documentation listed on the claim form. Processing of the claim may take up to 90 days.

Searching for and claiming lost funds in the state of Indiana is completely free. Although professional finders are legally allowed to assist you for a fee of up to 10 percent of funds that they find, it is an easy process to do on your own. Lost financial assets that the unclaimed property office holds include funds from inactive bank accounts, utility refunds, uncashed checks, stocks and the contents of safety deposit boxes. Indiana holds unclaimed assets for 25 years before they become property of the state.
