Texas requires institutions, businesses and governmental entities to report to the state any personal property that has been abandoned or unclaimed for up to five years, depending on the property in question. Returning that property to its rightful owners is one of the duties of the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts.
It’s never too late to make a claim, and we are committed to ensuring hardworking Texans don’t lose a penny.
It takes about one minute — learn whether you have unclaimed property listed in the database. File a claim in only a few minutes or check your claim status.
Check for yourself, friends and family. Search by a nickname or maiden name, the name of a deceased loved one or even a business.
Texas has no statute of limitation on unclaimed property; it always belongs to its owners or their legal heirs.Search Unclaimed Property
