Unclaimed Property Claim Form & Checklist

Individuals may claim property that belongs to those individuals, businesses, organizations, deceased owners, estates, joint accounts, or on behalf of another person by submitting the Unclaimed Property Claim Form (COT-ST912). In order to claim property, the form submitter must provide appropriate documentation to validate their relationship to the original owner.
