Filing a Claim

Alaska's searchable database is linked with missingmoney.alaska.gov where you can search for unclaimed property. Follow the instructions on the website to file a claim online. Any information you enter must be current and accurate, including apartment number and full name.

After you file a claim online, we will contact you via email to begin processing your claim. Because of our claim volume this may take several months. Stock claims may take longer to process as well. If you receive a claim form, follow the instructions in sections B and C and send us the required documents via email.  You have 90 days to respond. If we do not receive the requested documents within 90 days, your claim will be dropped. 

If you are filing a claim as an heir, be ready to provide information on how you are legally entitled to do so.

If you have questions, contact us by email at ucproperty@alaska.gov.
