Unclaimed property is lost financial assets such as uncashed payroll checks and abandoned financial accounts that a business or organization holds for an unreachable party. 
 
State law requires all businesses and organizations to remit unclaimed property to the Department of State Lands, which houses the state’s unclaimed property program. All unclaimed funds are held in trust forever for the rightful owner in the Common School Fund, a trust fund whose earnings are sent twice yearly to Oregon’s 197 public school districts.
