ATTENTION will be upgrading the unclaimed property search system from July 15, 2019 to July 23, 2019.  During this time, you will be unable to search for or check the status of unclaimed property.  Thank you for your patience as we work to provide you with a better and faster search experience.

By statute, the State Treasurer of North Carolina oversees the state’s more than $711 million unclaimed property fund. North Carolina’s NC Cash Program carries out three important missions of the Unclaimed Property Division of the Department of State Treasurer: 

  • Returning Unclaimed Property to rightful owners.
  • Ensuring that companies conducting business in North Carolina are in compliance with Unclaimed Property Laws. 
  • Remitting the earnings of the Unclaimed Property Fund, or the Escheats Fund, to the North Carolina State Education Assistance Authority (SEAA) which provides loans and grants to worthy and needy North Carolina students attending state-supported colleges and universities. 

Supporting Education

Interest from the unclaimed property fund goes to the State Educational Assistance Authority to provide grants and loans to worthy and needy North Carolina Students.
