Unclaimed Property Holder Reporting Seminars

Did you know that businesses and other entities are required to report unclaimed property if they are unable to contact the owner? Common types of unclaimed property include uncashed checks, customer credits, inactive bank accounts, and unapplied deposits.

Oregon State Treasury administers the state’s unclaimed property law. Each year, we offer specialized seminars to help businesses learn about complying. Please join us at a future session.
