Missing money and unclaimed property in California


The controller John Chiang offers people from the state of California to come and search for Unclaimed property search in California by entering a database of unclaimed money which is being updated weekly.

When arriving to the website you will be taken to a search page which will allow you to locate Unclaimed Property that already has been sent to the State for safekeeping, as well as property that is about to be sent to the State by a business as required by law.
  • According to the website, State law requires businesses to send to the State any property that has remained in their possession without any activity on the part of the owner, generally for three years or more.

How to begin searching?
  • Simply enter your last name or business name in the search field.
  • First name, middle initial, and city are optional.
  • Once you click the “search” button, our database will search for property associated with the information provided.
