Where Can You Access the National Abandoned Property Database?

Individuals may access the Unclaimed Property Database and utilize its services free of charge at cfo.dc.gov. The Washington, D.C. Office of the Chief Financial Officer administers the site and manages database content, which is comprised of assets collected by the Office of Finance and Treasury's Unclaimed Property Unit.

Unclaimed property means personal assets, either monetary or otherwise, which are determined to be abandoned following failed attempts to locate a rightful owner. Items of this nature include customer deposits, checking accounts and bank over-payments, as well as unclaimed payroll wages or commission monies; revenue from certificates of deposit which have reached maturity or life insurance policies determined to be paid in full; and proceeds from stocks, dividends or death benefit pay-outs.
