Unclaimed property list to be published

The state Treasurer’s Office has released the latest tally of names that were added to the state’s unclaimed property list over the last six months.

More than 45,000 new properties in excess of $100 million combined are owed to individuals and businesses.

Unclaimed property includes forgotten savings and checking accounts, un-cashed checks, insurance policy proceeds, stocks, dividends, and contents of unattended safe deposit boxes. Most accounts are considered "abandoned" and turned over to the Treasury after three years with no activity.

The full list was published in The Boston Globe today, and
in the Boston Herald on Sunday, March 9. The full list will also be published in 30 other regional papers, while a partial geographically segregated listing will be published in 19 local papers.
