Deadline Approaching For Sacramento Residents To File For Unclaimed Property

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – The deadline to obtain any unclaimed property the city of Sacramento possesses is quickly approaching.

Anyone with unclaimed property with the city has until June 25 to file a claim. The city released a list of the property on April 26, and has since received more than 200 claims totaling $122,000.

Residents can visit the city of Sacramento website to review the list, and obtain instructions on filing a claim. For those without internet access, the list — along with instructions on filing a claim — is available at the guard desks in the lobbies of both City Hall buildings.

The unclaimed property list consists of 10,419 unclaimed items, including un-cashed checks and utility account credits occurring when customers overpay on their account and don’t request a refund.

The unclaimed property totals to approximately $1.77 million, averaging out to about $170 per person.

This is the second year the city has published the list, which is now an annual publication. Any unclaimed property will be added to the Sacramento’s General Fund.

Last year, a list of 15,000 unclaimed items was released, totaling about $1.95 million. The city approved 253 claims and paid out $350,000.

The remaining unclaimed property was transferred to the general fund — $1.5 million of which was added to the Economic Uncertainty Reserve.

To review the unclaimed property list, instructions and claim form, visit the city of Sacramento website.
