Find Lost Funds

Oregon is holding millions of dollars in unclaimed assets – savings bonds, stock dividends, tax refunds and uncashed checks.

State law requires businesses and organizations to send all unclaimed funds to the Department of State Lands if the owner cannot be contacted after a certain amount of time, usually three years.

Each year, about $50 million is remitted to DSL, and about half that amount is returned to rightful owners (nearly 20,000 people or entities). All unclaimed funds are held in Oregon’s
 Common School Fund until claimed. Interest earnings from the fund are sent to Oregon schools twice a year.

Check to see if the state is holding money or property that belongs to you, a family member or your business.
