Did you know you may have money coming from a deceased relative?
Most people come to our site and search their name or names of family members and friends. But, millions of dollars go unclaimed each year because no one thinks to check for their deceased relatives. However, that money is still eligible to be claimed no matter how long it's been since your relative passed away. Here’s what you need to do:
- Enter the last name of your deceased relative in the search field.
- Narrow or refine your search by entering a first initial or first name.
- If you find their name, check the box(es) on the left and add them to your bucket.
- Select your relationship to the claim (Heir or Executor).
- Submit the claim as a Guest or a Registered User.
- Follow the instructions on the form.
- Note that you'll usually need a copy the obituary as proof of your relationship to claimant. Call our office for help or clarification.
- Provide proof of your identity (social security card, driver’s license, etc.).
- Sign and notarize your claim with an official notary (Bank, UPS, FedEx, etc.).
- Mail in your claim.
We hear so many stories from relatives who thought the funeral home found all the assets of their deceased loved one. But then, several years later, they came across Utah's Official Site for Unclaimed Property and found a claim that slipped through the cracks.
