Attorney General Todd Rokita invites Hoosiers to hop on over to IndianaUnclaimed.gov and see what “egg-citing” treasures await you.

“Easter is a great time to spend with loved ones. So, why not find a little “egg-stra” cash to have some fun. It’s my office’s commitment to return unclaimed property to Hoosiers,” Attorney General Rokita said. “This Easter holiday is a perfect time to hop online and start searching for something every bunny will love.” 

Last year, Attorney General Rokita’s Unclaimed Property Division returned $62 million to Hoosiers, and you could be next. You never know what the Easter Bunny might leave in your basket.  

Some property owners in the Unclaimed Property Division’s database include such holiday-appropriate first or last names of Easter, Egg, Spring, Church, and Sunday. Don’t put all your eggs in one basket though, make sure you also search for your loved ones or your business.  

Test your “cluck” at the egg hunt — and check out some of the types of property that might go unclaimed:  

  • Unclaimed wages or commissions
  • Money orders
  • Safety deposit box contents
  • Savings and checking accounts
  • Refunds
  • Overpayments such as:
  • Credit card balances
  • Cell phone bills
  • DMV payments

Once unclaimed property is in its custody, the Unclaimed Property Division conducts an outreach effort to locate the rightful owners or heirs.

Individuals and/or businesses have 25 years in which to claim money once it is reported to the Unclaimed Property Division.   

Just this year we’ve already returned over $21 million to Hoosiers, with nearly $800 million just waiting to be claimed.  

So be sure to check IndianaUnclaimed.gov or text CLAIM to 46220 to search your name, family or business and have an “egg-cellent”  Easter.
