WELCOME TO OKLAHOMA TREASURER'S OFFICE UNCLAIMED PROPERTY
The primary mission of the Oklahoma Unclaimed Property Division is to reunite owners and heirs with their property. As custodian, the state treasurer is charged with protecting your property and maintaining it in a centralized location to access searches. The state will not claim ownership of the property and will relinquish it once claimed by the rightful owner or heir.
On July 1, 2000, the State Treasurer assumed responsibility for the state’s Unclaimed Property Program. Every state has an unclaimed property program. The purpose of these programs is to return unclaimed property to rightful owners. Unclaimed property includes everything from jewelry, stock certificates, coin collections and cash.
Property is considered unclaimed when there is a lack of activity generated by the rightful owner of the property. Evidence of this inactivity includes failure to cash a check, the return of a check or correspondence by the Post Office as undeliverable, or the absence of any communication from the owner. If property remains unclaimed for a certain number of years set by statute, it is considered abandoned and must be reported to the state's unclaimed property program.
