California's unclaimed property: How to see if you are owed money, make a claim

Have you checked lately to see if you’re owed unclaimed money in California? Were there valuables you left at a bank years ago and forgot about? The California state controller’s office maintains a system for people to search for unclaimed property by name and safeguards billions of dollars worth of properties until the rightful owners can be found. "We've heard that as many as one in three people that visit the website find unclaimed property," said Jennifer Hanson from the State Controller’s Office.
