How does this program benefit me?

The Unclaimed Property Program protects the rights of the absentee owner, relieves businesses of the liability and record keeping for the account, and ensures that the funds benefit the public.  Rather than contacting every company that may owe you money, our program is the central "lost and found" of unclaimed money owed to Virginians.  We operate under a Virginia law called the Uniform Disposition of Unclaimed Property Act.
