No. Because the claim form must be signed in front of a Notary, we require the original signature.

Proof of ownership is usually established by address verification or social security number. Something to show a business relationship with the reporting entity is helpful as well. If ownership becomes difficult to prove, claims will be reviewed on a case by case basis.

A copy of a bill, the top portion of a tax return, birth or death certificates, vehicle registrations, school transcripts, or other correspondence will suffice.

A copy of a marriage certificate or court document showing the name change will be sufficient.

You may provide a copy of a tax return, insurance card, or any other document that shows your social security number. If you are unsure please contact the unclaimed property office for help.

Personal information relating to unclaimed property claimants, including Social Security Numbers, is confidential. The Department of Trust Lands does NOT make such information available to the public.

These claims can still be paid under certain conditions. The person claiming the property should be the personal representative of the estate, the executor of the will, or someone otherwise legally authorized to conduct financial business on behalf of the deceased person.

If the owner died intestate (without a will) the unclaimed property claim may still be paid. Please contact the unclaimed property office to obtain specific information.
