Oklahoma Unclaimed Money

What is Unclaimed Money in Oklahoma?

Oklahoma unclaimed money refers to any financial asset that has been left inactive by its owner for a period of time. This can include things like checks, bonds, refunds, insurance payouts, and more.

Under state law, certain types of unclaimed money must be turned over to the state for safekeeping after a set period of time. This process is known as escheatment. In Oklahoma, the provisions for unclaimed money are specified in Oklahoma Statutes Annotated Section 84-315.

The Oklahoma State Treasurer's Office is responsible for holding onto and returning unclaimed money to its rightful owner. Persons who are owed unclaimed money can search the state treasurer's online database for information on possible unclaimed funds and property.

In Oklahoma, the dormancy period for abandoned money or property is three years after which it is escheated to the state through the treasurer's office.
