The Virginia Department of the Treasury has launched a new program and web-based search to help Virginians access unclaimed money owed to them by businesses.
“One in four Virginians has unclaimed property so we encourage all Virginians to search our free website for their unclaimed property,” Virginia Treasurer David Richardson said in a press release. “There is no deadline, and no fees will be charged to claim your property.”
The release warns Virginians against using fee-based services to recover unclaimed property, advising them to work only with the state Department of the Treasury. To search the database and begin the claims process, visit VaMoneySearch.gov.
