California May Owe You Money
Unclaimed property can be a lost or forgotten bank account or safety deposit box, an uncashed cashier’s check, leftover funds in an escrow account, a matured certificate of deposit, or a matured or terminated insurance policy.
California's Unclaimed Property Law requires corporations, businesses, associations, financial institutions, and insurance companies to report and deliver property to the California State Controller's Office after there has been no activity on the account or contact with the owner for a period of time specified in the law - generally (3) three years or more.
