Search for money in deceased relatives’ names.

Ancestors
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: 

  1. Enter the last name of your deceased relative in the search field.
  2. Narrow or refine your search by entering a first initial or first name.
  3. If you find their name, check the box(es) on the left and add them to your bucket.
  4. Select your relationship to the claim (Heir or Executor).
  5. Submit the claim as a Guest or a Registered User.
  6. Follow the instructions on the form.
  7. Note that you'll usually need a copy the obituary as proof of your relationship to claimant. Call our office for help or clarification.
  8. Provide proof of your identity (social security card, driver’s license, etc.).
  9. Sign and notarize your claim with an official notary (Bank, UPS, FedEx, etc.).
  10. 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.

    How do you find out what happened to the money in a VA federal Credit union in Utah . My cousin passed away last year I got the death certificate and tried to contact them but it's closed down. She had money in her savings account for over 10 years. I am the beneficiary and  I have not heard from no one. Her name is Cleo Patra Rulliere Merrill.

    I also chatted with someone online they had no clue. Where to look

    I was informed some time ago that there was insurance money in the name of my deceased mother - ELLA WILSON ADAIR being held by the State.   To date, I have not been able to figure out how to find that.  Would appreaciate some help.

    I am trying to find the company I went with.  They were going to e-mail me some papers.  My e-mail was not working.  I have a new one that does.  I lost their #.  I paid $24.00 for their services.  Does this sound like you.

    How do we know if the item is big enough to justify the work to claim it?
