54K New Properties Added to Unclaimed List in Massachusetts

September 14, 2015

The list of unclaimed property in Massachusetts is growing.

State Treasurer Deb Goldberg says more than 54,000 new properties — with a total value in the millions — have been added to the list maintained by her office.

Unclaimed property can take the form of forgotten bank accounts, stocks and insurance policies, or items left behind in safe deposit boxes.

Unclaimed property reverts to the state after three years but can be claimed by rightful owners.

The new additions include only unclaimed property worth more than $100. The list will be published in newspapers around the state over the next couple of weeks.

Goldberg says the treasury returned about $113 million to rightful owners last year.
