Maryland’s Unclaimed Property Division is currently holding money and items over the years, reunited over $1 billion in cash and properties to their rightful owners.
The Comptroller of Maryland has records on nearly 758,000 accounts, dating back to the 1960s. These accounts are worth approximately $708 million, and more money is reported to the Unclaimed Property Unit each year.
Maryland’s Unclaimed Property Unit often holds events at places like county fairs and festivals in an effort to return unclaimed property to their rightful owners. If you don’t want to wait for the county fair to roll around before checking if you have unclaimed property, you can visit Maryland’s Online Unclaimed Property Search to see if you are richer than you think.
