Protecting and informing consumers is an important part of the work we do every day at the Minnesota Department of Commerce. The information in the section will help you make informed financial decisions, avoid pitfalls and scams, and protect your personal financial information.
We may have something that belongs to you. Every day, someone loses some form of financial property because of a change of address, death, or just plain forgetfulness. What happens to these forgotten funds?
The Unclaimed Property Unit is responsible for holding the abandoned or unclaimed funds or property until the rightful owner or heir is found. The unit has returned 31 percent of unclaimed property reported to the state to the rightful owners through the unclaimed property program. One in 20 Minnesotans has $100 or more in State's Unclaimed Property Fund.
