California Unclaimed Property

The California State Controller has made it easier for folks who may have left some “unclaimed property” in the hands of the state to get the money back.

The Controller has put into place an “eClaim” process for use by owners to claim accounts worth up to $1,000 (previously $500).  This electronic procedure allows folks to file a claim online instead of using the previous paper form filing process.
