Anyone with knowledge of the death of an individual without a will and known heirs is required by law to notify the Department of State Lands within 48 hours of that knowledge.
The Department holds estates for 10 years within the Common School Fund, and if no heirs come forward within that time period, the proceeds from the estate permanently escheat to the fund.
In recent years, staff have handled an average of seven estate cases per week. In 2015, nearly $7 million was escheated to the Common School Fund from estates.
