State Sen. LeAnna Washington (D- Montgomery/Philadelphia) today announced that she and her district office staff will help constituents who don’t have computer access to search the state Treasury’s Unclaimed Property Database.


“So many Pennsylvanians are entitled to unclaimed property, but are not aware that the database exists, or are unable to access it,” Washington said. “If you or someone you know needs assistance searching for potential unclaimed property, my district office staff and I will be happy to help.”


Staff members in either her Wadsworth Avenue or Roslyn district offices will be available on an ongoing basis to help constituents search the system to see if they are eligible to make a claim.


Washington urged all Pennsylvanians to visit to find out if they are eligible to claim property, but noted that constituents without a computer or internet access may have difficulty checking to see if they have unclaimed property recorded in the database.


The Department of Treasury is seeking the owners of more than $1.5 billion in unclaimed property in Pennsylvania. The Treasury estimates that approximately one in ten Pennsylvanians is entitled to claim items including, but not limited to, old bank accounts, un-cashed checks, stocks and life insurance policies.


Constituents who need assistance with claims may contact either her Wadsworth Avenue office (215-242-0472) or her Roslyn office (215-517-1434) for help.
