Unclaimed Property

The City of Irvine is now offering its residents easy access to a list of non-City issued checks and unclaimed property held by the State of California. California’s Unclaimed Property Law requires certain entities to report and submit their customers’ property to the State Controller’s Office if assets have been held for three years or more. Common types of unclaimed property are:

  • Uncashed Checks
  • Bank Account Balances
  • Stocks and Bonds
  • Insurance Benefits
  • Wages
  • Safe Deposit Box Contents

There is no deadline for claiming these assets once transferred to the State Controller’s Office.

To help Irvine residents search for Unclaimed Property, see below map to search for Unclaimed Property by name or address, then go to the State Controller's Office to submit your claim. This information is updated quarterly in January, April, July, and October.

Separate from the State Controller’s unclaimed property, the City of Irvine maintains a listing of all accounts payable checks issued by the City that are at least one year old and have not been cashed. The listing and instructions on how to submit a claim for uncashed checks are located at cityofirvine.org/uncashedchecks.
